There was a temporary closure of Highway 1A in Portage la Prairie for maintenance work due to potholes forming on the bridge.
The closure affected the exit for traffic travelling eastbound on Highway 1 wanting to enter Portage la Prairie. Manitoba Infrastructure may have to issue future temporary closures in the coming weeks as the thaw continues.
Temporary gravel works were put in place in November in 'less than ideal conditions' and ongoing work will be required on the route. The province plans on having the roadway paved when the weather warms up.
