Highway 9 Reconstruction Nearing Completion

October 8, 2013 2:59 PM | News

Manitoba LogoWork is nearly complete on upgrades to Highway 9 north of Clandeboye.

The Manitoba government said on Tuesday the $7.5 million project — which extends 13 kilometres from Highway 4 — will improve traffic flow and safety for motorists and commercial vehicles.

Worker included removing old payment, installing culverts, and constructing new pavement.

Infrastructure and Transportation Minister Steve Ashton said the work was done in stages. Culvert work was followed by removing old pavement and, finally, repaving the road, which began in September. There is no detour, but motorists are advised to continue following the directions of flag persons. The work will be completed this month, weather permitting.
