In January this year by the city`s authorities was announce a big number of road construction projects in Winnipeg. Most of such works were already finished, but still, there is a big number of the projects is still coming in different areas of the city. So Winnipeggers should plan ahead for the trips, allow extra traveling time and used mobile apps like Waze to check traffic and roadblocks on their route.
Manager of engineering at the Public Works Department Brad Neirinck noted that the timing of the projects depends on many factors like weather conditions and big events in the city, which involve some roads blocking form traffic and only pedestrians allowed on a temporary basis.

The city authorities hope for understanding from the citizens as all of these construction projects are carried out to improve the city`s infrastructure and driving efficiency. Also, remember that speeding fines nearly doubled in the construction zones. Please be patient and allow workers to do their job to make the city a better and safer place to drive!
