Considerations in the United States
While Fargo and Grand Forks are looking at diversion projects, they're directly relevant to the Red River Floodway article.
- I would agree that the US diversion projects are not directly related, but they are related in that they deal with the same river, and have suffered similar floods to Winnipeg. One of the major reasons they would consider a diversion project would be the success of the Red River Floodway in Winnipeg. So to my mind, this section is relevant, and should be kept.

I am doing a project on this right now. I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba so I have first-hand research.
- It is one of three man made structures that can be seen from space (low Earth orbit): The others are the Great Wall of China and the Suez Canal. (There is a myth that the Floodway, along with the Great Wall of China, can be seen from the moon. This is false—no manmade structure can be seen from the moon.)
Other similar projects?
I'd like to know more about other cities with flood control ditches of similar scale - a litle context for the Red River Floodway would be helpful. Or is it the only one of its kind? --Wtshymanski (talk) 16:34, 19 March 2012 (UTC)
Final cost of the project.
Wikipedia currently states:
The Red River Floodway Expansion was completed in late 2010 at a final cost of more than $665,000,000 CAD.
This web site says $665,000,000 is the budget.
Final cost is The project was finally completed at $38m, below the initially estimated budget of $665m in March 2014.
I suggest we make changes to the current text accordingly
