Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure reports the intersection reconstruction of the Trans-Canada Highway at Provincial Road 207 is planned to start on May 23, a temporary traffic signal shutdown will be in effect.

The shutdown on Provincial Road (PR) starts today from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and the intersection will be controlled by flagpeople.

Once the temporary shutdown is complete, temporary traffic control signage will continue to be in place for all directions in the intersection until the fall. Motorists are asked to ensure they are adhering to construction signage and use caution while 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.

Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure advises construction on this project will continue through October 2023.
