WINNIPEG, Man. — The Trans-Canada Highway in Manitoba is garnering attention under the Strategic Highway Infrastructure Program (SHIP).
Three upgrades totalling $15.72 million will take place under the program. A 19-kilometre section of Hwy. 1 at Provincial Highway 256 will be upgraded to four lanes, safety will be improved at the Highway 1 Coverall/Husky west of Winnipeg and turning lanes and a raised median will be installed at the intersection of Hwy. 1 and the John Blumberg Sports Complex.
"These three projects to upgrade the Trans-Canada Highway reaffirm the federal and provincial governments’ commitment to invest in Manitoba’s highways," said Rey Pagtakhan, regional Minister for Manitoba. "The allocation of resources towards the modernization of transportation infrastructure in the province is a positive step towards maintaining an excellent road system."
