Portage and Main Could Open By Next Fall

BIG NEWS…

The City plans to open four pedestrians crossings at Portage and Main within 18 months!

The plan is to allow pedestrians to cross Portage Avenue E. — between Richardson Plaza and the Bank of Montreal by the fall of 2019.

As it stands the price tag is around $3.5 million. The money will go to redesigning the intersection, improve the sidewalks above ground and repair the underground concourse.

The reopening of Portage and Main would affect buses from Main Street, and traffic.

The deadline for the request for proposals is June 26.

What are your thoughts on opening up Portage and Main?
