WINNIPEG - The Manitoba government is promising $3.5 billion over the next 10 years for municipal roads, bridges and other projects.

The province says it's doubling money for streets in Winnipeg over the next three years to $42 million.

Another $21 million is available for municipalities outside Winnipeg for new road work.

The province has also released a list of planned infrastructure projects for this year.

They include intersection improvements on Highway 75 near the U.S. border and funding for an underpass on Plessis Road in east Winnipeg.
