The Manitoba government is investing $45 million on upgrades to the Interlake Highway from Winnipeg to Winnipeg Beach on PTH 9.

Work on the highway will include paving of 13.1 kilometres from three km north of Clandeboye to PTH 17, concrete reconstruction of 7.6 km from PTH 101 (north Perimeter Highway) to 1.7 km south of PTH 27, concrete rehabilitation of two km near Selkirk from 0.8 km north of PTH 9A (Craig Avenue in Selkirk) to 2.8 km north of PTH 9A (Maple Drive) and structure replacement at the Grassmere Drain.

The new upgrades are part of a five-year plan that will see all of the new revenue from the one-cent-on-the-dollar increase in the PST put toward building Manitoba's core infrastructure including roads and bridges, flood protection and municipal infrastructure like sewer and water systems.

"This busy Interlake highway is important to local families and businesses, tourists and commercial travelers. We know the best way to encourage growth in our rural economies is to invest in roads and bridges. We made significant upgrades over the last five years and these new upgrades are part of our continuing commitment to improving infrastructure in Manitoba," minister of infrastructure and transportation Steve Ashton said.
