Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure has just informed Manitoba Parks that a portion PR 309 between the junction of PR 307 and Big Whiteshell Lake (at the spot of the flooding near Meditation Lake) is now moving to Closed – Local Traffic Only. Manitoba Parks will be working to make sure that campers and cottagers in the area are aware of the change. Public should be aware and use caution when travelling through the area and to travel slowly as the road is rough in places under the water. We encourage everyone to check manitoba511.ca before travelling (you can also call 511 anywhere in Manitoba to get updates by phone).
If cottagers have any questions, concerns or urgent matters regarding the high water please contact Manitoba Parks at 204-340-6769 between 8am and 6pm daily. To report an emergency please contact the RCMP via 911 if located in the South Whiteshell, 204-348-7177 in the North Whiteshell, and 204-345-8685 in Pointe du Bois. Inquires regarding camping or normal operations should can be directed to the regular inquiry line at 1-800-214-6497.
