WINNIPEG — The Government of Manitoba is investing roughly $33.5 million in upgrades to the Trans-Canada Highway.
Upgrades will be centred on the section of the highway that runs through the Rural Municipality of Headingley.
Part of the work includes a $15 million surface reconstruction that will add dedicated left turn lanes and raise the median. This section of the project is expected to begin this summer.
The John Blumberg-Coverall and Husky station service road and Trans-Canada Highway intersection is receiving a new service road for $1.9 million. Work on this section is also set to begin this summer.
Currently in the design phase are intersection improvements at Camp Manitou Road and the Trans-Canada Highway addition of a new service road. This project represents a $9.5 million investment.
The final branch of the project is a new weigh scale facility with longer lanes, additional queue space and other improvements. This project is in the design phase and will cost an estimated $7 million.

Why waste taxpayers money on this section when you could extend Canada Way west to the white horse by passing Headingley?????
They should at least contract from the US. The US at least knows how to pave not patch and re patch
