Rough road ahead

  • Print

Drivers on a northern stretch of Sturgeon Road in the RM of Rosser will soon be warned to slow down.

Rosser reeve Frances Smee said council passed a motion to place a sign reading, "Rough road — Reduce speed" on the section of road running south of the Perimeter Highway to Inkster Boulevard. That municipal road isn’t paved and is in poor shape.

"It’s really been pounded by the traffic," said Smee, adding that many people use it as a commuter route to and from Winnipeg.

She said the road hasn’t been repaired because it will be closed as a through road when CentrePort Canada Way opens. Traffic heading south on Sturgeon will then be directed onto a service road, and Smee expects this change to reduce the volume of traffic on the northern section of Sturgeon Road.
