Apr 21, 2017
People living in and around a western Manitoba First Nation say they’re worried someone will get hurt, or worse, if a degrading highway leading into the area isn’t fixed soon.
Karen Batson, chief of Pine Creek First Nation, says Highway 20 — an essential route that leads to her community and two other towns nearby — is falling apart.
Spots along a 50-kilometre stretch of the paved highway between Winnipegosis and Camperville have become rough and devoid of pavement. In other spots, pavement is crumbling away. The roadway is also has many potholes, bumps and dips have formed in a number of spots where culverts cross underneath the highway.
