Dauphin, MB – Today, Robert Sopuck, Member of Parliament for Dauphin-Swan River-Neepawa, was pleased to see the second phase of road and drainage improvements on Highway 10 get underway.
“People who live in and around the Park are aware of how important these upgrades are. For tourists coming to enjoy our incredibly diverse and beautiful national park, this will only further enhance their experience,” said MP Robert Sopuck.
Highway 10, which traverses Riding Mountain National Park from the south to north gates, plays a critical role in the smooth flow of people and goods through the region. The first phase of this important road upgrade was approved by the federal government in 2014, with the first phase of roadwork being completed in the fall of 2015. The tendering process for this year’s work was completed, and a contract was awarded on July 20, 2016. The second phase of this roadwork is expected to be completed by the end of October, 2016.
“When travelling through the Park, be sure to be patient through these construction sites. Slow down, enjoy the beauty of Riding Mountain National Park, and help ensure road crews, cyclists and motorists are stay safe during this important project,” concluded Sopuck.
