Proposed Design to Improve Safety on Busy South Perimeter: Schuler

The Manitoba government will provide information and receive feedback on the functional design plans for the future St. Norbert Bypass on the South Perimeter Highway (PTH 100) between Aug. 10 and 21, Infrastructure Minister Ron Schuler announced today.

“The redesign will allow us to plan for a modern freeway to improve safety and traffic flow,” said Schuler.  “As part of the Trans-Canada Highway, the South Perimeter is one of the most important economic corridors in Manitoba and plays a strategic role in connecting the provincial economy to world markets.  As traffic volumes increase in the area, now is the time to finalize plans for future improvements to this important roadway.”

The information sessions will allow the public to learn about the functional design processes for both the South Perimeter and the future St. Norbert Bypass.  To ensure full public input, there will be three rounds of public information sessions for the projects.
