Final report on Winnipeg road construction

Final report on Winnipeg road construction

Winnipeg authorities published a list of streets and roads that will be repaired this year. At least 56 streets and 11 back alleys likely won’t be fixed in Winnipeg this year, thanks to funding spat between the City and the Province. The city administrators told the infrastructure committee Thursday morning that 34 local roads will be repaired in 2019.

A City of Winnipeg working group has released its final list of recommendations for road construction. The final report suggests the city use more pre-qualified contractors and master service agreements, implement a multi-year construction program and extend working hours, including planning for more 24-7 construction.

The group had four meetings over the summer leading up to the creation of the eight-page report and intends to reconvene to review progress and evaluate road construction improvements.

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.
