Waverley Underpass to Be Built

July 30, 2015

Today, I’m so happy to announce that after years of dedicated work with City of Winnipeg staff, my fellow members of City Council and you, the residents of River Heights-Fort Garry, the Waverley Underpass has crossed its final hurdle to becoming a reality.

While it’s been a long road, I’m proud of my continued work to make this project a priority for the City of Winnipeg, to ensure the design improves traffic flow around established neighbourhoods while respecting existing businesses and, most importantly, that it gets done. 

Thank you to everyone who signed our petition, called my office, sent me emails or posted to my Facebook wall to voice their opinion about the need for the underpass. Your tenacity and dedication to this project is the reason it will soon happen.

With civic, provincial and federal funding commitments now in place, I’m excited that we can put our plans in motion and see work on this important project start.

To stay up-to-date as plans for the Waverley Underpass develop, sign up for our Community Connections e-bulletin by emailing jorlikow@orlikow.ca and we’ll share information as it becomes available.
