Highway 9, from Winnipeg to Winnipeg Beach, to get upgrade

  • Print

The Manitoba government announced another highway renewal project today — this one Highway 9 from Winnipeg to Winnipeg Beach.

Infrastructure and Transportation Minister Steve Ashton said the $45-million highway project will see concrete reconstruction, asphalt resurfacing and better road drainage along sections of the highway.

The construction will start this spring over the next five years and is expected to create the equivalent of one year of employment for more than 500 people, Ashton said.

The province said planned work includes:

  • paving of 13.1 kilometres from three km north of Clandeboye to PTH 17;
  • reconstruction of 7.6 km from PTH 101 (north Perimeter Highway) to 1.7 km south of PTH 27;
  • concrete rehabilitation of two km near Selkirk from 0.8 km north of PTH 9A (Craig Avenue in Selkirk) to 2.8 km north of PTH 9A (Maple Drive); and
  • structure replacement at the Grassmere Drain.

Ashton said the upgrades are part of the government’s plan to see all new revenue from the one-cent-on-the-dollar increase in the PST devoted to building Manitoba's core infrastructure including roads and bridges, flood protection and municipal infrastructure like sewer and water systems.

In the past two weeks the province has announced upgrades to Highway 75 and the Perimeter Highway and opened CentrePort Canada Way.
