We've just received word that the roadway near the rail intersection at Highways 50 and 16 is now reopened. 

No further information is available.



Portage la Prairie RCMP are reporting a road closure at Hwys 50 and 16.  

The closure is at the railway crossing due to a motor vehicle collision with a train. There are some injuries. But it’s not known how many people were injured at this time. Just one motor vehicle was in the collision. Motorists are asked to avoid the area.  

If you're heading to the Amaranth area, you will have to take gravel roads. 

We'll give further information when the road opens again.
