Whiteshell Road Improvements – Announced as part of Manitoba 150 Celebrations

Posted on: April 24, 2019  |  

Good news for Whiteshell Cottagers:

The infrastructure work that Minister Squires (in her recent address to the Whiteshell Cottagers Association’s AGM) advised us to watch for, was announced yesterday for expenditure on upgrading of heavily used gravel roads in the Whiteshell Provincial Park – including:

“Sustainable Development Projects

• paved road improvement along Falcon Lake South Shore Road in the Whiteshell Provincial Park;

• paved road improvement to Big Whiteshell subdivision in the Whiteshell Provincial Park”

The plan is – to take advantage of an asphalt plant that is being put into operation in the eastern Whiteshell area to work on the TransCanada highway, and make it serve the local upgrading needs as well, by using it to pave high useage gravel service roads in the Whiteshell Park. Both the South Shore access road at Falcon Lake, and the main cottage service road at Big Whiteshell Lake will be upgraded in 2019 in preparation for paving. The paving is expected to be completed in 2020.

The upgrading of these heavily traveled service roads has been a top priority of both the Whiteshell Cottagers Assoc. and the Parks and Protected Spaces Division of Sustainable Development, for the last several years. Our thanks go out to Minister Squires for making these a priority projects for this government as well.
