CentrePort Revisited


I reported on this about a year ago, and now we're finally seeing progress.

Groundbreaking has begun on the major construction project - described as "the largest national infrastructure renewal effort in half a century" - that will come to be known as CentrePort.
...milestones include the start of the first stage of development for the four-lane divided expressway known as CentrePort Canada Way and upgrades to Highway 75. These improvements will provide better, more efficient highway access to CentrePort Canada and nearby assets including Winnipeg’s James Armstrong Richardson International Airport and the Canadian Pacific Weston Rail intermodal facility, and ensure that trade moves more effectively across Canada and into the Asia Pacific Gateway, as well as south through the Emerson border crossing, and into the United States and Mexico.
