It’s no secret that some of the city’s worst roads are in the Polo Park area. A major provincial investment will soon result in better driving conditions in one of the city’s busiest areas.

The Polo Park area has seen major expansion of retail businesses for more than a decade and new residential and commercial development on the old Canad Inns stadium site is coming soon.

The province is contributing $20 million to this project. The total cost is estimated at $40 million and is funded in partnership with the City of Winnipeg.

Construction is planned for 2014 and the preliminary design and public information session is scheduled for September 2013.

The scope of work includes:

* extension of St. Matthews Avenue from St. James to Madison streets;
* improvements to St. Matthews Avenue between Empress Street and St. James Street; and
* improvements to the St. James Street/St. Matthews Avenue and St. James Street/Ellice Avenue intersections.

No more potholes!!!
