Traffic lights are coming to the intersection of Highway 52 and Industrial Road in Steinbach.

Infrastructure Minister Ron Schuler and Steinbach MLA Kelvin Goertzen made the announcement Monday morning while standing at the intersection, a frequent destination of emergency crews tending to accidents in recent years.

According to the province, traffic counts in 2017 and further analysis supported the installation.

"Steinbach continues to grow quickly and along with that growth comes more vehicle traffic and the need to ensure it can move safely," Goertzen said.

"This intersection has been identified as one of the priority intersections by municipal officials for traffic lights and I’m glad that we are able to move forward with it."

Schuler said the province would not yet give a cost for the project, but did say it will be funded through provincial dollars and hopes the work will be completed by the spring of 2019.

He now expects the project will go to tender immediately.
