A new construction zone is popping up on the South Perimeter Highway on Wednesday and will cause delays until mid-July.

Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure reports construction activities begin today on Provincial Trunk Highway (PTH) 100 at Provincial Road (PR) 330.

Work on PTH 100 will require lane closures in both the eastbound and westbound directions. Lane width will be limited to 3.7 metres today and tomorrow. Speeds will be reduced to 60 kilometres an hour in the work zone.

The project will improve the railway crossing as well as constructing a right turn lane at PR 330.

This work is anticipated to be complete by July 15.

Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure will update impacts to traffic through the Manitoba 511 information system at www.manitoba511.ca/en/index.html.
