Section of Trans-Canada Highway closed starting Monday

A portion of the Trans-Canada Highway has been closed to traffic since Monday morning.

Last week, the Manitoba government announced that the highway in the RM of Headingley from PR 334 to 0.8 kilometres west of PR 334 will be closed. The closure will last from 6:30 a.m. on June 24 to 9 p.m. on June 28.

According to the province, the closure is a result of highway reconstruction, which will include improvements to the roads and the Canadian Pacific Kansas City railway line.

During the closure, the westbound and eastbound lanes will be blocked to traffic.

Westbound traffic will be diverted from the Trans-Canada Highway to PTH 100, PTH 3, and then PTH 2. Drivers will then head north on PR 248 back to the Trans-Canada Highway.

Eastbound traffic will be diverted off the freeway to PTH 13, PTH 2, and then PTH 3, before rejoining the Trans-Canada Highway.

Most commercial vehicles are allowed to use the diversion. However, long combinations are only allowed to drive during the day.
