Provincial Road 312 to Ingolf is Open

Posted on: July 14, 2016  |  

The province has reopened Provincial Road 312 from Highway 44 to the Ontario border for the first time in almost three weeks.

Officials advise caution, because there is still water over the road in some places.

PR 312 flooded and washed out in several places when 136 mm of rain fell in the south Whiteshell in two hours overnight on June 24.

The road provides access to the south side of Caddy Lake, to McDougall’s and Big Island landings on West Hawk Lake, and to the Ontario village of Ingolf.

Meanwhile, officials said that an Amphibex will remain on Caddy Lake until at least Friday afternoon. It has dredged and removed 30 truckloads of debris from the lake since arriving last Friday, much of it so-called land bogs that broke free when the lake flooded. The province said that water is flowing freely from Caddy Lake into South Cross Lake through the tunnel beneath the railway tracks at the north end of Caddy.

Most provincial trails remain closed, including the Mantario and McGillivray Falls trails.

Whiteshell Snowmobile clubLooking for a Fulfilling Opportunity?WE WANT YOU! We all know that snowmobile trails don’t just happen. It takes resources and many volunteer hours to maintain 13,000 kilometers of snowmobile trails in the areas of signing, grooming, equipment maintenance, shelter upkeep, etc. Why volunteer? People volunteer for many different reasons. For some, it’s to help others and give back to the community and club. For others, it is to build self-confidence, gain personal growth and learn new skills. We know it’s important to get outside during winter and enjoy all that Manitoba has to offer. Giving your time lends you a sense of well-being and connectedness to others and certainly fights boredom. It allows you to share your talents, abilities, and experiences while at the same time learning new skills from others. And don’t forget volunteers can have fun and enjoy themselves by making new friends. To volunteer please contact Snoman at info@snoman.mb.ca or your local club today! ... See MoreSee Less
