WINNINPEG, Man. — Manitoba highways will receive a historic $257-million investment this year, which will include continued twinning of PTH 59 and the northeast Perimeter Highway, and improvements at the PTH 1 intersection in Headingley.
“This unprecedented level of investment in Manitoba’s roads represents this government’s commitment to building a highways network that in years to come will lay the foundation for continued prosperity in the province, from east to west and from north to south,” said Ron Lemieux, Minister of Transportation and Government Services.
In announcing the funding for Manitoba highways this year, Lemieux highlighted approximately $69 million for highway projects in the capital region and eastern Manitoba, including the worst parts of PTH 75, as part of a continuing plan to target the highway over the next three years.
“Today’s announcement takes a significant step forward on improving Manitoba’s highway infrastructure, but we have more work to do”, said Lemieux. “We are committed to further investments into Manitoba’s highways.”
