Abinojii Mikanah (Bishop Grandin Boulevard) is an important truck, Transit, and commuter route. We will renew the road in 2024/2025.

The goal of this work is to fix the road and improve safety. The road work will consist of removing the existing asphalt and recycling the existing concrete in place. We will construct a new asphalt surface on top of the old road. We will remove the curbs and rebuild the shoulder.

We will also pave the shoulder with asphalt. We will also upgrade signs, traffic signals, guardrails, and drainage.

In 2024, we will work on the eastbound lanes between:

  • River Rd and St. Mary's Rd
  • Dakota St and St. Anne's Rd

We will not do any intersection work in 2024.

The scope of work to be completed in 2025 has yet to be finalized.
