St. Anne's Road twinned roadway opens
WINNIPEG - October 24, 2005 - Councillor Gord Steeves officiated today at ribbon-cutting ceremonies for the St. Anne's Road Twinning Project.
Winnipeg's newest four lane divided roadway, stretches 1 kilometer from approximately 400 metres south of Southglen Boulevard to Compark Road.
Councillor Steeves says, "Mayor Katz and I and our colleagues on City Council recognize the importance of strategically investing in infrastructure improvements such as this, that benefit large numbers of our citizens. This project will significantly reduce the traffic congestion that has resulted from the rapid growth we've seen in south St. Vital."
"Current traffic volume on this stretch of roadway is approximately 11,000 vehicles per day," said Bill Larkin, Director of Public Works. "The new median, dividing opposing traffic, will improve safety for motorists and pedestrians, as well as the aesthetics of the roadway."
The project includes new left—turn storage lanes at key locations, new traffic signals at the intersection of St. Anne's and Southglen and new underground land drainage sewers replacing ditches.
Construction of the $3 million roadway began in spring of this year.
