In October 2011, the City of Winnipeg provided an asphalt over-lay as a temporary fix to the vibration and noise issue along this stretch of Academy Rd between Oak Street and Oxford Street. This over-lay is unique as it is a new product that is been tested as a treatment for similar issues associated with similar failed streets. After hearing residents whose homes were affected by the vibrations from the passing traffic, I took action and had this overlay done.
This will reduce the ongoing vibrations affecting residents in the adjacent homes and make life more peaceful. I hope to announce further repairs to Academy Road in the near future.
