Manitoba Hydro project slows down St. James Street road repairs
from CTV News
A major road project in Winnipeg has stalled. A large stretch of St. James Street has been overhauled over the last couple of years. Now, a plan to finish off the remaining portion along Polo Park in 2016 is being being bumped to 2017. The city set aside $7.3 million to fix St. James Street, from Maroons Road to Portage Avenue, this year. But due to a scheduling delay with Manitoba Hydro, the work won't begin until next May. Before the road work can start, Manitoba Hydro needs to bury transmission lines on the west side of St. James and put up street lights. The hydro installations won't be done soon enough to get all the road work done in 2016.
