BRANDON, MAN. — Crews will soon commence demolition as the first step to redevelop the Daly Overpass in Brandon, Man.
“Our government is committed to improving this critical infrastructure for the City of Brandon,” said Ron Schuler, infrastructure minister, in a statement. “Due to the growth in the region and the importance of PTH 10 as a major route, the current Daly Overpass has created an undesirable bottleneck system for motorists and pedestrians. We are pleased to have a strong working relationship with the City of Brandon on the construction of this project.”
The scope of the work includes a new four-lane bridge with a separate pedestrian and active transportation bridge. The $65 million plan design also calls for new on and off ramps to connect 18th Street with Pacific Avenue, new pathways and sidewalk and pavement upgrades.
Onsite project work will begin this month with demolition to begin in December, including the Kullberg’s building. Manitoba Infrastructure officials stated they will continue to provide project updates to the public as work progresses.
