Winnipeg is a great and constantly growing city. Our city authorities recognize a need for constant growth and development as the city`s population grows every year.
Waverley Underpass project slated to be completed in 2020, now being pushed to open this year! The total cost for the project is now $98 million, down from the original $156 million budget. The construction at Waverly was completed ahead of schedule and $57 million under budget.
The Waverley Street and Taylor Avenue will be closed to vehicular traffic this weekend from 5:30 p.m. on Friday until 6 a.m. on Monday, August 19. Despite the road being closed to all motor vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists will be able to use the new multi-use path on the east side of Waverley Street throughout the weekend.
Construction is expected to be completed in November 2019 and landscaping will be completed in spring 2020.
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.
