Upgrades coming at busy intersection

Drivers who use the 17th Street East and Richmond Avenue East intersection will soon find traffic lights, turning lanes and a safer roadway thanks to a joint effort by the City of Brandon and the provincial government.

The roadway is the third of four intersections targeted for improvements, said Ted Snure, the city’s general manager of development services.

“We are only in the preliminary budget stage there right now, and they are doing preliminary designs,” he said. “We will be asking for a portion of the funds in the 2013 budget. I know it’s on their capital list and will be constructed next year.”

Those designs will include adding a set of traffic lights, as well as left-turn lanes.  The intersection services traffic headed to the Maple Leaf Foods plant as well as the Canexus facility and other employers on Richmond Avenue, and can be particularly heavy during shift changes.

Snure said that Manitoba Infrastructure and Transportation has included these improvements in their long-term capital plans, which prioritize the projects based on several factors.

“They are telling us they are looking at construction in 2013,” Snure said.

After that intersection is done, a stretch of Victoria Avenue between 34th Street and 36th Street will be worked on, Snure said.
