The Manitoba government is funding the upgrade and repair of more than 1,160 kilometres of highway in 2013, along with upgrades to more than 40 bridges.

The province released their 2013 construction tendering schedule on Friday, which includes the completion of CentrePort Canada Way, a new roadway connecting CentrePort to the national and international highway system, and intersection reconstruction of the Trans-Canada Highway through Headingley.

“We have completed many of the major repairs of roads and bridges damaged in last year’s flood and have made record investments in our roads and bridges, but we know there is more to do,” said Infrastructure and Transportation Minister Steve Ashton. “We will continue to upgrade and renew the province’s vital network of highways and roads, which are the economic backbone of our economy.”

Upgrades close to Winnipeg include:

  • Starting a multi-year project to upgrade the Perimeter Highway near Brady Road
  • Rehabilitating the overpass on the Perimeter Highway at PTH 75
  • Rehabilitating the overpass structure on the Perimeter Highway at the Trans-Canada Highway East

The complete tender is available on the province’s website.
