The Manitoba government is inviting the public to provide feedback on functional design options for proposed upgrades along Provincial Trunk Highway (PTH) 8, from Provincial Road (PR) 220 to PR 230, Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Doyle Piwniuk announced today.

“Upgrades along PTH 8 will improve road safety and better manage traffic volumes,” said Piwniuk. “The feedback we receive through this first round of public engagement will be incorporated into project plans to help ensure the current and future needs of Manitobans.”

The survey is seeking feedback on the following intersections:

  • PTH 8 and PR 220 (Grassmere Road) including the east and west service roads and the future connection of Holmes Road;
  • PTH 8 and Northumberland Road;
  • PTH 8 and PR 321 (Miller Road);
  • PTH 8 and PTH 27 (Parkdale Road); and
  • PTH 8 and PR 230 (McPhillips Road).

The survey, which is available until Oct. 20, is also seeking feedback on access management, road alignment and drainage upgrades.

The minister noted the upgrades along PTH 8 are part of the government’s ongoing commitment to building and maintaining a robust grid of reliable highways that support the safe, efficient flow of people and goods.
