The Province of Manitoba is has provided updates regarding the Highway 75 and Deacon’s Corner construction projects.
Back in May, Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure or MTI began a major concrete reconstruction project on a 24.5-kilometre stretch of southbound Highway 75 between Ste. Agathe and Morris. This was a project that was first announced late last year.
According to a provincial spokesperson “The lanes are expected to be open for use before winter, when the majority of this concrete work is scheduled to be completed. Work is underway to address some construction challenges, but weather has been optimal for highway construction and MTI expects continued progress for the remainder of the 2023 construction season.”
The intersection of the Highway 1 and PR 207 otherwise known as Deacon’s Corner has also been under construction all year. In fact, the intersection improvements began in the summer of 2022.
An MTI spokesperson says “Major paving on the main lanes of the Trans-Canada Highway is complete and work is currently underway on new left turn lanes on northbound PR 207. Construction is expected to be substantially complete in October.”
Some minor construction is planned next year but according to MTI, it is not expected to significantly impact traffic.
