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.

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
