The City of Winnipeg has officially broken ground on the Waverley Street Underpass project.

The $155-million, multi-faceted project includes the replacement of the existing at-grade railway crossing at Waverley Street and Taylor Avenue with an underpass. The project also includes the reconstruction and rehabilitation of Waverley Street as well as the widening of Taylor Avenue between Waverley Street and Lindsay Street to four lanes.

To keep traffic moving while the underpass is built, a four-lane detour road is now under construction. In addition, several other portions of the project will get underway in the spring and fall of 2017 including a rail detour, pedestrian and cycling detour, Grant Avenue and Waverley Street intersection improvements and the rehabilitation of Waverley Street between Mathers and Grant Avenues.

The governments of Canada and Manitoba are each contributing up to $45.9 million to this project through the Provincial-Territorial Infrastructure Component – National and Regional Projects. The City of Winnipeg will cover the balance of the costs for this $155-million project. CN is also contributing $9.5 million to the City’s share of the project. Approximately 30,000 vehicles and between 35 and 40 trains pass through this rail crossing on a daily basis.

The Waverley Underpass project is expected to open by the end of 2019 with some minor work such as landscaping continuing into 2020.
