Winnipeg Seawall Project Moves Ahead
Construction on the seawall project at Winnipeg Beach Provincial Park is progressing according to schedule, the Manitoba Sustainable Development said.
The seawall was heavily damaged by a storm last spring, but repairs and improvements are nearing completion and the public will now be allowed to access the main beach.
Other work continues and there are some areas with new sod or grass seed that cannot be fully used yet.
Additional finishing work on the sidewalk will continue for the next two to three weeks, so visitors are asked to follow signage and use the gravel path to the beach, the Government of Manitoba said in its announcement.
Improvements to the seawall and surrounding area will provide additional flood protection to the community and improve amenities for this popular summer destination.
Construction continues on the north beach, but it is expected to reopen later this summer.
