The original PTH 59N/PTH 101 interchange was designed in the mid-1990’s. In 1996, a detour consisting of two signal-controlled intersections was constructed to allow for future construction of the interchange. As traffic volumes increased, operational and safety issues arose, and in 2014 Manitoba Infrastructure initiated design build construction of the full interchange along with an active transportation crossing of PTH 101 and upgrades to the intersection of PTH 59/PR 202. WSP completed the functional design, prepared procurement documents, and provided oversight during construction. Shovels were in the ground in May 2015 and the interchange opened to traffic on October 31, 2018.
