Westbound lanes of Trans-Canada Highway near Portage la Prairie reopen after collision
No injuries reported in collision between two tractor-trailers Saturday morning: RCMP
A stretch of Highway 1 near Portage la Prairie has been reopened after a collision closed the highway's westbound lanes Saturday morning.
Traffic travelling west on the Trans-Canada Highway bypass at Portage la Prairie, about 85 kilometres west of Winnipeg, was being rerouted onto Can-Oat Drive, an official with Manitoba Infrastructure said.
An RCMP spokesperson said the crash involved two tractor-trailers, and no injuries were reported.
The westbound lanes of the highway remained closed until everything was cleaned up because the semis were still blocking the road, the spokesperson said.
