The Government of Manitoba has announced funding for eight highway improvement projects in the province.
A combined total of approximately 350 kilometres of road will be improved through these projects. Work involves repaving sections of the Trans-Canada Highway, PTHs 2, 3, 5, 6, 10 and 16. Additionally, intersections will be safer by adding rumble strips, and paving road shoulders at various locations. New lanes will also be added along a six-kilometre stretch of PTH 6 to improve safety, and along PTH 75 to improve connections to U.S. border facilities.
Once complete, these vital upgrades will help keep Manitoban drivers safe, improve traffic flow and boost trade to support economic growth for years to come.
“We continue to focus our investment on improving Manitoba’s provincial highway network, ensuring Manitobans see their money at work each and every day. These critical investments provide Manitobans with the tools needed to strengthen access in and out of surrounding communities, ensuring residents have a safe and healthy place to live, work and raise a family,” said Infrastructure Minister Ron Schuler.
The Government of Canada is contributing $143,967,500 to these projects through the New Building Canada Fund while the Province of Manitoba is providing $147,442,500.
