Manitoba’s winter road system will be fully open this week, with the exception of the Tadoule Lake road, giving access to remote and northern communities’ for delivery of essential goods and inter-community travel. Today the Province of Manitoba announced the system will be completed this week and communities will have full passage to the network.
The typical winter road season runs from mid-January to mid-March, depending on weather conditions. The winter road system is over 2,381 kilometres long and serves over 30,000 Manitobans in 22 communities. Each year, more than 2,500 shipments of goods arrive by truck to Northern remote communities in Manitoba.
Last season, over 118 transport companies obtained permits for winter road freight hauling and were successful in providing Northern communities with essential items.
Road users are encouraged to follow current COVID-19 public health orders and to contact individual communities for possible entry requirements prior to travelling.
