Traffic should soon begin flowing a little more smoothly along Highway 30 south of Altona.

Highway crews have been shoring up the surface of the road this week by applying a heavy oil and a fine layer of chips overtop, called a float.


Manitoba Highways Spokesman Bob Last says crews will be sweeping some of the chips off the road and will then begin taking down the 40 kmh speed limit signs as well.


He adds the same process will begin along PR 243 starting at Rosetown moving west up to Highway 32.


Motorists are encouraged to heed the 40 kmh speed limit signs when passing on-coming traffic.
