The paving from 16th to 20th Street on Saskatchewan Avenue in Portage la Prairie has wrapped up, as construction continues on the rejuvenation project.

According to the latest update provided to the city, the eastbound lanes will continue to be a full-blown construction zone as excavation continues into 12th Street. Due to this ongoing work, there will some minor changes and closures through the intersection, heading east.

Executive Director of the Portage and District Chamber of Commerce Stefanie Dunn says she has chosen to take the Avenue this week to familiarize herself with the changes and to enjoy the new westbound design. You can see some photos of the project below.
