As part of the Highway 12 Improvement project, the City of Steinbach has identified another intersection that would benefit from a reconfiguration.
Phil Kalyta, head engineer for the City, says the intersection of Highway 12 and Loewen Boulevard is next on their radar to see upgrades. "That intersection is currently signalized but it's not operating at its peak, or the best it can."
He says they have the intersection scheduled for reconstruction, between Hwy 12 and Hwy 52 at Loewen Boulevard, and are gearing towards having the work done in 2022. "Hopefully we will have some land acquisition, so we can do some detailed planning with the signal configuration and everything. So ideally, it would be good to coordinate it all so it would be ready to go when we reconstruct Loewen Boulevard."
