CJOB News Team reporting
While a lot of attention was made of Winnipeg City Council debating the pros and cons of a waterpark, some big improvements are on the way for two of the city's major transporation routes.
Council has voted to extend the Chief Peguis Trail to Route 90, and extend the William Clement Parkway to Wilkes Avenue by 2016.
The President of the Manitoba Heavy Construction Association, Chris Lorenc, tells CJOB this all bodes very well for the future of the whole city.
Among other things, the William Clement Parkway project is expected to cut down on current traffic backlogs in south Winnipeg.
Mayor Sam Katz says it's not a done deal; the additions will cost 300 million dollars and there's no word on where that funding will come from.
