The project, for owner Manitoba Infrastructure & Transportation, replaces an existing signalled interchange at Provincial Trunk Highway (PTH) 59 and PTH 101 with a loop ramp structure. Work includes seven precast girder bridges ranging from approximately 40m to 100m in length and a cast-in-situ box culvert through-pass. The project also includes construction of 1.5 million cubic metres of embankments and demolition of an existing bridge.
The interchange is a main route for both daily commuters and commercial traffic. The surrounding communities are growing with additional residential developments expected in the near future. The project is designed to alleviate congestion in the short-term, as well as easily accommodate future expansion for additional traffic demands. The upgrades will also improve safety at the interchange.
