Manitoba’s Winter Road System Completely Open for the Season

by ahnationtalk on February 21, 2020103 Views

Manitoba Infrastructure advises the province’s winter road system is now fully open, to serve approximately 30,000 Manitobans in 22 communities in areas where there are no permanent roads.

The system is made up of approximately 2,200 kilometres of road, which allows large trucks and other vehicles to get necessary supplies to remote communities.  Each year, more than 2,000 shipments of goods arrive by truck in isolated northern communities.  The system also provides road access for community residents.

The typical winter road season lasts seven to 10 weeks, ending in March.  Opening of the system is dependent on the weather and the system must be closed when the ice begins to melt.

The latest information on road conditions is available by calling 511 (toll-free), online at or by following our Twitter account at
