2021 Portage Avenue Pavement Renewals Project
St. Charles Street to David Street
Portage Avenue from David Street to St. Charles Street is scheduled for roadwork during the summer of 2021 as part of the City of Winnipeg's 2021 Regional Street Pavement Renewals Program. The project will involve complete asphalt resurfacing of the existing pavement, concrete repairs to the roadway, curb, and sidewalks on the eastbound lanes, and replacement of the existing asphalt surface on the westbound lanes to address cracking and deterioration in the roadway. The project is supported by the Federal Government's New Building Canada Fund and the Government of Manitoba.
May 2021 – Portage Avenue from St. Charles Street to David Street is scheduled for an asphalt pavement renewal project in Summer/Fall 2021. Construction will have an impact on traffic, pedestrians, and access. Details and instructions regarding construction and traffic staging, access impacts, parking, pedestrian accommodations, and garbage/recycling collection will be posted approximately one week prior to construction. If you have accessibility concerns, special access requirements, planned special events, known underground appurtenances such as sprinklers or lighting cables within 6m of the Portage Avenue curb line, or any other questions regarding this construction, please contact Kelly Groff at Kelly.Groff@wsp.com. WSP Canada Inc. (WSP) is the City's contract administrator for this project. Learn more by reading the construction notice.
March 2021 – The project is currently in the detailed design phase and will soon go to tender for construction. Area businesses, residents, and property owners will soon receive letters notifying them of staging plans.
Portage Avenue is a high-volume vehicle route, Winnipeg Transit thoroughfare, and full-time truck route. This project will involve complete road resurfacing to address asphalt cracking and deterioration and concrete repairs to curbs and sidewalks to make the road surface more efficient for all road users.
As the project's scope is primarily to restore and repair existing infrastructure, there will not be any public engagement activities associated with this work. Instead, the City will reach out to businesses, residents, and property owners along the project route to provide information on localized impacts, and to gather information about any parking, loading, and/or access concerns that may be affected during construction.
For more information or questions related to the project, or if you are a local business and/or property owner and have not yet been contacted regarding construction, please contact 311, who will connect you with the Project Manager.

Frequently Asked Questions
The project will not have permanent implications for parking, loading, intersection geometries or routing; because of the project's limited scope it will not include any public engagement activities as there is no opportunity for meaningful public input.
We will be reaching out to businesses, residents and property owners in the area to gather information about any parking, loading, and/or access concerns that may be affected during construction and to ensure those directly impacted by construction are heard. This information will help us stage construction and allow us to make accommodations where necessary to ensure minimal impacts on local businesses, residents and property owners.
