Manitoba is planning improvements to the Louis Riel Bridge on Provincial Road 305 in Ste. Agathe and is looking for public input.

“Our government continues to make major investments in building and strengthening Manitoba’s infrastructure,” said Ron Schuler, the province’s infrastructure minister. “We want to ensure that our design not only maintains a safe, long-term crossing, but also balances the interests of citizens and businesses in the area.”

The existing bridge was built in 1959 and serves as a vital link to Provincial Trunk Highway 75 that helps connect people, businesses and agricultural land on both sides of the Red River, noted Schuler.

The Manitoba government has initiated a preliminary design study to identify and develop options for extending the service life of this bridge crossing. Public input is now being requested to better understand the effects of the project and gather feedback on the options being considered from the community.
