The City of Steinbach is advising motorists to expect lane closures along Park Road East throughout the month of August.

New pylons and barricades have been placed along the roadway in recent days, causing some to wonder, what is going on.

Steinbach’s Senior Operations Manager, Paul Penner, says the work will resemble the repairs have been taking place along Main Street all summer: small slabs of old cracked pavement are being removed and replaced. Penner says crews will have to shut down lanes from time to time, but they will try their best not to close the entire roadway.

Construction is expected to be completed by the end of the season.
