Manitoba launches public consultations on highway safety improvement

Manitoba launches public consultations on highway safety improvement

WINNIPEG – The Manitoba government is inviting the province’s residents to provide feedback on a function design study to improve safety at the intersection of the Trans-Canada Highway and Provincial Trunk Highway (PTH) 5 near Carberry.

“Following the tragic collision near Carberry on June 15, 2023, the Manitoba government has been focused on supporting victims and their families as well as identifying ways to enhance safety measures at this intersection,” said Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Lisa Naylor in a statement.

“We want to hear from those who use this stretch of highway and know it the best to weigh in on what option they would like to see used at this intersection.”

A public open house to begin design work at the intersection will take place at the Carberry Community Memorial Hall from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on July 16. In the fall the intersection options, including the three options identified in the in-service road safety review, will be available for public feedback at .

The province will also be holding public consultation for the intersection of PTH 12 and Provincial Road (PR) 210. An open house is scheduled at Club Jovial in Ste. Anne on July 11 from 6 to 8 p.m. The open house will provide an overview of the project, present design alternatives under consideration, and advise of the next steps, the release said.

Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure anticipates a preferred intersection layout for the Trans-Canada Highway and PTH 5 will be identified in late 2024, the release said, and the functional design report will be completed in early 2025. Intersection improvements are scheduled for completion in fall of 2026.
