Manitoba to Twin Trans-Canada from Falcon Lake to Ontario Border

Manitoba will twin the Trans-Canada Highway from Falcon Lake to the Ontario border, the province announced.

The 16-km stretch of highway will have four lanes of traffic from Falcon Lake to the Manitoba-Ontario border and the 700 metres leading up to the border will align with Ontario’s new four-lane highway.  The project is expected to be completed by fall 2024.

“It is important for Manitobans to have safe and reliable highways to get around this great province of ours and also to get to neighboring provinces,” Manitoba Premier Heather Stefanson said in a press release. “That is why we have prioritized this work as it not only serves as a key trade route, but is one of the busiest stretches of highways especially during the summer months for cottagers and travelers.”

“The Manitoba Trucking Association welcomes this announcement and we look forward to the completion of this project,” said Aaron Dolyniuk, executive director, Manitoba Trucking Association. “This road improvement will have a positive impact on all road users. It will improve road safety not only for Manitoba’s trucking companies, but all carriers who operate across Canada, as well as the general public.”“The Trans-Canada Highway is a vital trade and transportation corridor for the entire country, and I am pleased to see the Manitoba government is taking this important step forward to make the highway even safer and more accessible for travelers,” said Ontario Transportation Minister Caroline Mulroney.
