Province pledges $56M for Parkland highway upgrade

DAUPHIN — A $56-million highway upgrade that includes resurfacing and repaving to new national highway standards, as well as a new bridge, will make Highway 10 safer and ease congestion from Riding Mountain National Park north to Swan River, Municipal Government Minister Stan Struthers said this week.

The minister made the announcements following a roundtable meeting with municipal and business leaders from the Parkland region.

“Highway 10 is the Parkland’s main route for getting our agriculture products to market,” Struthers said.

Roundtable sessions were held in Swan River and Dauphin.

Representatives at the first session included those from the Town and RM of Swan River, the RM of Mountain, the villages of Bowsman and Benito, the RM and Town of Minitonas, the Swan Valley Chamber of Commerce, Louisiana Pacific and Spruce Products.

Representatives at the Dauphin session included those from the City and RM of Dauphin, Parkland Agricultural Resource Co-op, Dauphin Chamber of Commerce, Dauphin Economic Development, Norwex Canada and Richardson Pioneer.

“We’re bringing together Manitoba businesses, municipalities and workers’ associations to identify our strategic economic infrastructure priorities and get down to building. It can’t happen unless we work together,” Agriculture, Food and Rural Development Minister Ron Kostyshyn said.

Five-year projects for Highway 10 in the Dauphin area include high-performance chip sealing of 6.6 kilometres from Riding Mountain National Park to Highway 5; replacing a bridge at Drifting River; and paving 24.5 kilometres from the north junction of Highway 5 to provincial road 267.

Mr. Jetz,

What quick facts do you have to support that traffic volumes are mediocre on PTH 10?

Once again the provincial NDP continue to spend MORE money they do not have, putting our province even further in to debt.

Make a budget and stick to it.

Highway 10 has never and will never be a busy highway.....
