Adding fourth lane to overpass no big deal

Regarding the Daly Overpass — there is no reason why a fourth lane cannot be added to the existing overpass with very little disturbance to the other three lanes of traffic. Give me the job and I will hire Cando Contracting. Why? They work with and around railways every day and like a challenge.

Twenty-five years ago, I had 500,000 yards of C-Base on the east side of the Assiniboine River. I hired Cando to put a road through the river at the east end of Richmond Avenue. In three years, I had the gravel marketed in Brandon and they took it out.

The province, municipality and City of Brandon should have taken it over, improved it and kept it operative. It would have kept thousands of gravel trucks off Veterans Way for the last 25-plus years.

We will invite the premier to open the new land Nov. 1, 2014. He was quoted in the Brandon Sun, Jan, 23, 2013, saying the city would have to fix Eighth Street bridge before anything would be done to Daly Overpass.
