Manitoba funds $13M Dauphin road project

Manitoba funds $13M Dauphin road project

DAUPHIN, MAN.—Manitoba officials have announced a $13 million project to reconstruct the main access route into Dauphin.

“As committed to in Budget 2022, our government is investing in our communities by building safe and reliable infrastructure that supports economic growth and opportunity,” said Premier Heather Stefanson in a statement. “This highway project will not only benefit the City of Dauphin and improve the quality of life for those living, working and commuting in this area, it will also foster greater economic opportunities with expanded access to trade routes.”

Provincial Trunk Highway (PTH) 5A is the main south access into the city of Dauphin. Officials noted the growth of commercial development along the route has caused higher traffic volumes and higher collision rates.

The 1.7-kilometre project within the city includes a section of PTH 5A from Whitmore Avenue south to Triangle Road.

The work includes:

  • surface reconstruction with the creation of a divided highway;
  • improving highway safety within a developed commercial area by having all local accesses connect to service roads and service roads connecting to PTH 5A at upgraded intersections;
  • creating a signalized intersection at the local mall entrance; and
  • constructing service roads along both the east and west sides of PTH 5A from their existing points south to Triangle Road.

“Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure has been working in collaboration with the City of Dauphin and its officials for several years to finalize the design concept and details to ensure the project meets the growing needs of the community,” said Doyle Piwniuk, infrastructure minister. “We look forward to strengthening our partnerships with communities across the province by investing in long-term strategic projects to build the foundation of Manitoba’s economic growth through trade and commerce infrastructure.” 

The province intends to publicize the tender for the reconstruction of a section of PTH 5A by the end of May. The project, estimated at over $13 million, is anticipated to be completed before 2023 in advance of Dauphin serving as the host community for the 2024 Manitoba Summer Games.
