Amid hubbub, $300 million in freeways approved

A downtown water park went down the drain at city council Wednesday, but $300 million of new freeways got the green light.

City council voted to extend the Chief Peguis Trail all the way to Route 90 and the William Clement Parkway to Wilkes Avenue, both by 2016.

The city's transportation master plan says Winnipeg should extend Chief Peguis Trail to McPhillips Street by 2021 at a cost of $110 million and connect it to Route 90 by 2031 for an estimated $130 million.
