WINNIPEG — The province is warning of travel delays beginning Tuesday at the Deacon’s Corner intersection east of the city.
The area of the Trans-Canada Highway and Provincial Road 207 is scheduled to start a new phase in the reconstruction of the intersection.
“A temporary traffic signal shutdown will be in effect tomorrow from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.,” the province said in a release.
“During the shutdown, the intersection will be controlled by flagpersons and traffic will be transitioned from a four-lane undivided highway to a four-lane divided highway. Once the temporary shutdown is complete, the new permanent traffic control signals will be operational for all directions in the intersection. Motorists are asked to observe construction signage and use caution while travelling through the construction zone.”
Officials advise anyone travelling to and from Lorette and the surrounding area should consider using PR 405 as an alternate route to avoid delays at Deacon’s Corner.
While the project is mostly complete, clean-up activities will continue into next spring, the province added.
