$61-Million Total Investment in Vital Trade Corridor: Piwniuk

Highway improvement projects on Provincial Trunk Highway (PTH) 75 are well underway, with construction started in mid-May and expected completion scheduled later this year, Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Doyle Piwniuk announced today.

“As Manitoba’s main north-south trade route, PTH 75 is critical to the safe, efficient transportation of goods, products and services to international markets,” said Piwniuk. “These projects will ensure this major economic corridor is in peak condition to continue supporting economic growth and opportunity in Manitoba.”

The minister noted the existing pavement on PTH 75 between PTH 23 and Provincial Road (PR) 305 was constructed more than 30 years ago and, despite ongoing maintenance, has now deteriorated to the point that full reconstruction is required.

Last August, the Manitoba government announced an investment of more than $61 million to restore the segment of PTH 75 from Morris to Ste. Agathe, as part of its $1.5 billion three-year commitment to improving Manitoba’s highway network. Concrete reconstruction work on the 24.5-kilometre section of the highway began on May 15 and is scheduled to be completed by fall.

The minister also highlighted that two other projects on PTH 75 are currently underway or in planning:

  • Concrete rehabilitation for joint repairs on the southbound lanes of PTH 75 from PR 201 to PTH 23 is ongoing. Work on the 25-km section is anticipated to be completed by fall 2025.
  • Design of a $9-million project to reconstruct the southbound lanes of PTH 75 at the Pembina-Emerson Point of Entry is in the early design phase. The project, cost-shared with the federal government, and will include a new dedicated truck lane west of the current highway’s alignment.
