There will be some traffic disruptions along the Trans Canada Highway at the Manitoba/ Ontario border beginning Monday.
According to Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure (MTI), this is all part of the preliminary work in twinning that highway.
MTI is advising that rock blasting will begin Monday and continue for the next four to six weeks. Traffic will be stopped for each blast for approximately 15 minutes, depending on site-specific conditions and traffic volumes. Motorists are being warned to expect delays.
Our province is twinning a 700 metre segment of the highway nearest the border to align with Ontario's new four lane highway.
