Road & Backlane Renewals

The City of Winnipeg considers all road, backlane, and sidewalk renewals in metres. However, to make sense of what has been fixed in our neighbourhoods, the following list of renewals accomplished during Ross Eadie’s first term are considered by block. Please note the Councillor Eadie’s efforts in getting City Council to take responsibility for the bad road conditions that have developed over 27 years has led to more and more streets being fixed as each year passes. City Council does have a plan to fix local and regional streets under a local road renewal and a regional road plan where money raised goes into only fixing this infrastructure. Councillor Eadie’s additional advocacy to the Province of Manitoba led to their contributing seven million dollars in 2013 – the results are quite visible.

Roads

There are two levels of road renewals that involve either reconstruction or rehabilitation. Reconstruction involves ripping up the old road and starting fresh, and rehabilitation involves taking out failing concrete in areas along the road and curb with asphalt then used to cover the whole road.
