Demolition to start as $65M Daly Overpass project gets underway in Brandon, Man.
A project to replace a more than 50-year-old bridge over a Canadian Pacific Railway line along Provincial Trunk Highway 10 in Brandon, Man. is scheduled to begin this month.
Provincial Infrastructure Minister Ron Schuler announced the imminent start of demolition and other early works on the $65 million project Nov. 13.
“Due to the growth in the region and the importance of PTH 10 as a major route, the current Daly Overpass has created an undesirable bottleneck system for motorists and pedestrians,” he said in a release.
After moving through the design and land acquisition phases over the past several years, crews will begin tearing down the Kullberg’s building on the southeast end of the current overpass next month.
Construction of the new four-lane bridge over the CP rail infrastructure is expected to start next spring. The project includes new on and off ramps to connect 18th Street with Pacific Avenue, as well as a separate pedestrian bridge over the tracks just east of the new overpass. PTH 10 will also be realigned to the east so the old overpass can remain in use during the roughly three-year construction period.
The project is scheduled to be complete by late 2023.
