A stretch of Manitoba highway was officially reopened last Friday just prior to the start of the long weekend.
Highway 10 north of Brandon has undergone major improvements spanning 15 kilometres. The northbound and southbound lanes have been repaved, including intersection upgrades at the junction of Highway 10 and 25.
The provincial and federal government also invested in three new service roads at various locations, new paved shoulders, guardrails installed at four locations, and rumble strips placed along the paved shoulders.
The old pavement was recycled into the new pavement on site, which reduced the amount of material required for the new pavement and lowered the cost of producing and hauling materials.
