The Manitoba government is investing $19.6 million to reconstruct Provincial Trunk Highway (PTH) 3 in south-central Manitoba.
“Our government’s priority is to advance important roadworks to improve the quality and efficiency of infrastructure in our province,” said Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Doyle Piwniuk. “PTH 3 is an important trade route that supports Manitoba’s strategy in developing a highway network that enables market access and supports economic opportunities in our province.”
The tendered contract has been awarded to Coco Paving (Canada) Inc. to renew the infrastructure along PTH 3 that runs through Pilot Mound and Crystal City. The project includes grade widening, intersection improvements, culvert replacements and resurfacing with multi-layered pavement. The improvements will also include partially paved shoulders and fully paved shoulders on highway curvatures.
The project is scheduled to begin this spring with all aggregate production, culverts and grade widening work to be completed in the fall of 2022. The surfacing work is slated to begin in the spring of next year and is anticipated to be completed by the fall of 2023, noted the minister.
