The new north service road along the Trans-Canada Highway could be open by the fall of 2013 if weather delays do not occur, a Manitoba Infrastructure and Transportation spokesman said.
Grading work is set to be completed on the road that will connect Highway 10 North with Deer Ridge Road by this fall, which will allow for the completion of the base and paving work next year.
In all, 1.3 kilometres of road will be constructed for $3.4 million.
The road is being built to accommodate future businesses and other developments on the north side of the Trans-Canada Highway. It also allows for existing businesses to have access to a service road from the back end of their properties.
It is also part of a larger development plan that includes the construction of interchanges at the intersections of the Trans-Canada Highway and Highway 10, as well as the Trans-Canada Highway and Highway 1A.
The overall plans for the interchanges and access roads can be accessed online at brandonareaplanning.mb.ca/images/maps/Highways.pdf.
