Interesting news regarding the extension of CCW to the Trans-Canada. That is practically light speed for a phase 2 by Manitoba standards.

I hope the interchange built at 1/26/190 is sufficient for two twinned, high speed highways and not a cheap cop-out like the diamond at 100/2 which will likely result in traffic lights remaining on McGillivray Boulevard and the off/on-ramps.

Even though CCW is intended for industrial and logistics traffic, I wonder if it will have an effect on residential and retail activity in the Assinboia area? Having Manitoba's best highway to zip around on might have the side effect of encouraging more people to live in that area.
