The province has rolled out a new Manitoba highway map in time for the summer tourist season in both digital and physical editions.
Infrastructure Minister Ron Schuler revealed the map Thursday at Travel Manitoba’s office at The Forks.
“The updated Manitoba highway map is a sure travelling companion for drivers to go along with our excellent digital and electronic mapping system online,” said Schuler. “Road improvements such as changes to surface type or alignment, historic routes and parks have been added as well as other changes to the look of the map.”
The map also includes recent road improvements, such as new paved surfaces, road re-alignments, the completion of the all-weather road to Berens River, the establishment of PR 412 as a provincial road from Dallas to Jackhead, current winter roads as well as many other updates.
Neepawa, Niverville, and Stonewall have been added as maps of towns to reflect increased populations.
The province also added three new historic and tourist routes:
• John Bracken Highway, part of PTH 10;
• Life is a Highway, part of PR 391 between Thompson and Lynn Lake; and
• Helgi Jones Parkway, part of PTH 8.
