VIRDEN, Man. — A newly-twinned section of the Trans-Canada Hwy. was opened near Virden on Friday.
The twinning carried a price tag of $12 million with that cost shared between the province and the feds under the Strategic Highway Infrastructure Program (SHIP).
About 12 kilometres were twinned, beginning 1.2 kiloemtres west of Provincial Trunk Highway 83 North. There were also intersection improvements at the junction of the trunk road and the TCH.
"This highway improvement project has been a significant step toward improving Manitoba’s highways," said MP John Harvard, who was representing federal Transport Minister David Collenette. "It will enhance both public safety and the local economy."
