PORTAGE LA PRAIRIE, Man. — The westbound lanes on the Trans-Canada Yellowhead Hwy. (PTH 1) will be closed due to bridge repairs from Nov. 17 until mid-December.
The closure will be at the east end of the Portage la Prairie bypass and was necessitated when construction machinery hit the overpass structure recently, causing some damage.
During the closure, traffic will be rerouted through Portage la Prairie via PTH 1A. If hauling overheight or oversized loads, truckers are encouraged to PTH 2 as an alternate route. Eastbound traffic may also be impacted by the construction.
