Infrastructure Minister Panda announces funding for Bow River flood barrier project for West Eau Claire to Centre Street Bridge.

Together, the governments of Canada and Alberta, with the support of municipalities or other community organizations, will provide more than $107.5 million to complete eight infrastructure projects in northern and southern Alberta as approved through the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP).
