Brandon: Daly Overpass

Background Information

Provincial Trunk Highway (PTH) 10, known as 18th Street within Brandon, serves as the primary north-south corridor in western Manitoba, as well as an important crosstown route through Brandon. Due to growth in the region and its importance as a major route, the current 3-lane Daly Overpass has exceeded its capacity, creating a ‘bottleneck’ in the system.

Manitoba Infrastructure is proposing to build a new, 4-lane overpass to replace the 50+ year-old bridge. The new structure will meet current standards and serve the community and region well into the future. Manitoba Infrastructure is in the early stages of the planning process, and is looking for stakeholder input that will contribute to the identification and implementation of an effective solution. They have has retained Landmark Planning & Design to lead the public and stakeholder engagement component of this project.
 

PROJECT UPDATE - July 2017

Manitoba Infrastructure recently selected engineering firm Dillon Consulting Limited to complete a functional design of the new Daly Overpass structure and surrounding road works. Last week, a project initiation meeting was held with Dillon in order to share the input and feedback we received from stakeholders last Fall, and to update the project timeline. In the coming months, we will be working with the study team to develop bridge redevelopment alternatives. Our goal is to ensure that the full extent of concerns and opportunities are carefully considered by the study team when assessing bridge redevelopment options.

Survey crews were recently sent on site to to assess bridge redevelopment options.  We will be sharing these options in Fall 2018 and will be looking for stakeholder input to assist in evaluating these options.

We will be hosting a second round of stakeholder meetings this Fall and we will contact you in early September to arrange these meetings.  In the meantime, should you have any questions or concerns please contact us by email at info@landmarkplanning.ca or by phone at 204-453-8008.

Thanks again for your interest in this exciting project!
