Project 4 - All-Season Road Connecting Berens River to Poplar River First Nation

Manitoba Infrastructure proposes to construct an all-season road on provincial Crown land, designed as a 2-lane gravel public highway approximately 94 kilometres in length. As proposed, the road would begin near the Berens River First Nation, on the east side of Lake Winnipeg, Manitoba, and extend north from the Berens River to the Poplar River First Nation reserve boundary. Four major water crossings (bridges) over the Berens, Etomami, North Etomami, and Leaf Rivers, would also be constructed as part of the project.


Please note that the proponent was formerly known as Manitoba East Side Road Authority.
