Phase 1 of road improvements on Highway 10, which goes through Riding Mountain National Park, finished last fall, and now phase 2 started.
The second part of the project, is road and drainage upgrades, which will start on the north end of the park and finish on the south end, and it should be completed by the end of October.
It was originally going to start this summer, but a decision was made to hold off until the tourist season was over, to minimize disruption.
Conservative MP for Dauphin-Swan River-Neepawa Robert Sopuck says prior to construction, the road was in poor condition. The second phase of the project is part of a 5-year plan, which costs 36.5 million dollars.
