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 – December 2016

Manitoba Infrastructure has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) to hire an engineering firm to design the bridge, and the contract will be awarded in February 2017. In late February, we will host an initial meeting with the selected engineering firm to help them understand the issues and opportunities raised at our stakeholder meetings this past Fall. We will work with the engineers on developing bridge alternatives, as well as evaluation criteria to help assess the preferred option. Our aim is to host a second round of stakeholder meetings and a public open house in April 2017.
