Brandon, Manitoba – Manitoba’s Highway 10 will receive improvements between the Trans-Canada Highway and Highway 25 near Brandon. The project will upgrade a 15-kilometre stretch to meet current industry standards, reduce congestion and improve safety through the construction of passing lanes.

“Improving and maintaining our important international trade route is vital to connecting Manitoba’s exporters with opportunities in the U.S. and beyond,” said Manitoba Premier Greg Selinger. “Manitoba’s producers and manufacturers count on them.”

The proposed project involves reconstructing aged pavement to increase the highway’s loading capacity and improve safety. The shoulders will be widened and upgraded from gravel to paved surfaces with rumble strips, and new 1.5-km-long northbound and southbound passing lanes will be constructed. The project is expected to be completed in the fall of 2012.
