Motorists Encouraged To Be Patient, Exercise Caution

Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure (MTI) reports the intersection reconstruction of the Trans-Canada Highway (Provincial Trunk Highway 1) at Provincial Road (PR) 207, commonly known as Deacon’s Corner, is slated to start today.

MTI advises the motoring public there will be temporary traffic controls in the eastbound and westbound directions, and motorists should heed the construction signage and use caution when travelling through the intersection.  

Residents and businesses located in Lorette should consider using PR 405 as an alternate route to avoid delays at Deacon’s Corner.

MTI advises construction on this project will continue through October 2022.
