A busy section of highway just outside of Winnipeg is now closed for several days for construction.

There is a detour in effect:

  • Eastbound traffic will detour from Trans-Canada Highway onto PTH 13 to PTH 2, then onto PTH 3 before merging back onto Trans-Canada Highway.
  • Long Combination Vehicles (LCVs) will be allowed to travel during daylight hours (sunrise to sunset).

This closure will be in effect until June 28, 2024.
