There was a delay Wednesday afternoon for a truck driver transporting a house on the Trans-Canada Highway east of Winnipeg.

Hydro lines stretching across the highway were too low for the truck’s load to safely clear.

Manitoba Hydro was called in at around 1 p.m. with specialized equipment to temporarily raise the lines to allow the truck to pass.

The truck was travelling westbound at the time, approximately five kilomotres from city limits.
