Plenary Roads Winnipeg is pleased to announce it has reached financial close on the $467 million Southwest Rapid Transitway (Stage 2) and Pembina Highway Underpass Project.

Construction of the project will begin this summer and is expected to be completed in late 2019. Following a period of testing, training and commissioning, Winnipeg Transit operations on the new transitway are expected to start in April 2020.

The Southwest Rapid Transitway (Stage 2) and Pembina Highway Underpass Project is comprised of significant infrastructure components in the southwest quadrant of the city including: the completion of Stage 2 of the Southwest Transitway, the addition of active transportation infrastructure, the renewal and expansion of the Pembina Underpass, and connections to the University of Manitoba and Investors Group Field.

When completed, the project will allow Winnipeg Transit to bypass heavy traffic volumes on Pembina Highway, leading to greater on-time reliability, higher travel speeds, and improved service to the surrounding neighbourhoods.
