Improvements include intersection improvements, 30km of paving from PTH 12 to PR 302, paving and grade widening on the eastbound lanes from Borken Head River to the Greater Winnipeg Water District Railway, bridge rehabilitation at Birch River and Hamilton Creek, and a new bridge at Fish Creek.

“We are investing in jobs and road improvements around the province and this series of projects will make the Trans-Canada Highway east to the Ontario boundary a smoother ride and enhance this section of the national highway system,” said Premier Greg Selinger.
