City of Winnipeg constructed two bridges as part of the project
A four-day long celebration in early June, 2019, helped officially open Freedom Road. The 24-kilometre stretch of gravel road connects Shoal Lake 40 First Nation to the Trans-Canada Highway.
The City of Winnipeg is committed to help build all-weather road access to the Shoal Lake 40 First Nation community. It was one of the funding partners for two bridges as part of the all-weather road project. Shoal Lake is the source of Winnipeg’s drinking water.
