The Government of Manitoba has invested in road, bridge, and infrastructure improvements to support jobs, boost regional economy, and better traffic flow in the province’s north.

This is part of the Manitoba government’s $5.5 billion, five-year core infrastructure plan and the long-term commitment to invest in roads, bridges, and infrastructure throughout the province.”
