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.

Caddy Air Field – Manitoba Historical SocietyDuring the Great Depression of the 1930s, the Canadian federal government employed able-bodied, unemployed men to build public infrastructure. In return for their labour, each man was provided with food, shelter, and 20 cents per day. In Manitoba, three construction gangs worked in the Whiteshell Forest Reserve (today’s Whiteshell Provincial Park) to build roads to enable the development of tourism in this part of the province. Between Fall 1933 and Spring 1934, one hundred men from the Caddy Lake Relief Camp, under the supervision of Col. Logie Armstrong from the Department of National Defense, built an emergency airfield at this site about 1.5 miles west of the Ontario border. ... See MoreSee Less

Good morning, we found a small water craft (paddle boat) adrift in Big Whiteshell Lake. It was found floating in the middle of the lake no where near a cabin. I was wondering if you could post something for me? If they can identify what it is then we will know it is going to the rightful owner. They can message me to identify what it is and for pick up information. Or call me at 1 (204) 348-3294. ... See MoreSee Less
