Perimeter Highway | Winnipeg



For all topics related to Winnipeg's Perimeter Highway. Including the Headingley Bypass, St. Norbert Bypass and other highways related to CentrePort. CentrePort has it's own stand alone thread. But any major roadways could be included here.

Since there are plan's for ongoing upgrades over the next 5-10 years, and beyond; and the off topic discussions in other threads; I thought this thread would be warranted.

The Province of Manitoba recently raised the PST by 1%, a very highly publicized and volatile move. This money is now to be dedicated to core infrastructure.


Below links to major announcements recently for upgrades related specifically to the Perimeter:

A couple other links to projects that are still somewhat in the planning process, but may have been superseded by other more recent developments.

North Perimeter AT overpass (direct link to PDF)
http://www.gov.mb.ca/mit/pdf/pth101boards.pdf

PTH 59N & PTH 101 Interchange project (direct link to PDF)
http://www.gov.mb.ca/mit/pdf/info.pdf

Both of the above are sort of linked together now due to proximity.

PR 330 & PTH 100 Intersection Improvements
http://www.gov.mb.ca/mit/intersection/index.html

The above is still applicable, although the at grade intersection is now to be designed as an interchange. What will actually get built is another question.



In a nutshell, the Province of Manitoba has committed to upgrading the Southwest Perimeter to freeway standards, including interchanges at PTH 2/3, PR 330, and at Kenaston/Waverley/future Headingley Bypass.

Another poster (thanks Biff) provided some insight into the Southeast Perimeter upgrades. This includes median widening from St. Mary's PTH 1 east interchange and potentially interchange grading at St. Mary's, St. Anne's and going back to the Southwest Perimeter, at the Headingley Bypass.
