The Proposed Project

Manitoba Infrastructure proposes to construct 138 km of all-season road on provincial Crown land. The project, designed as a 2-lane gravel public highway, would consist of three sections of intersecting road located on the east side of Lake Winnipeg. These road sections would begin at the reserve boundaries of the Manto Sipi Cree Nation, the Bunibonibee Cree Nation and God's Lake First Nation. Two major bridges over God's River and Magill Creek could also be constructed as part of the project.
