Waverley West Arterial Roads Project - Winnipeg, MB

Planning for development of the City’s southwest quadrant began in the early 2000s.  The area is typically referred to as the “Waverley West” neighbourhoods. At full build out, it is anticipated that the area will be home to over 40,000 people, which is close to the population of Brandon, Manitoba. This complex, multidisciplinary project had unique design aspects that were considered in the delivery of this project.  The tri-level government-funded project was split into three parts in order to quickly get key pieces of infrastructure built first and to stage design and construction such that the schedule could be met.
