Road upgrades coming to Norway House Cree Nation and the Community of Norway House

Last week, the Manitoba government announced 21.5 million dollars in funding for upgrades to provincially owned roads for a pair of northern communities.

Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Lisa Naylor said the project focuses on repaving approximately 30 kilometers of provincial roads that traverse through and connect both Norway House Cree Nation and the Norway House community.

The project also includes the restoration of Provincial Road 373.

Chief Larson Anderson of  Norway House Cree Nation said these essential infrastructure initiatives  will improve the safety of community members.

Additionally, Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure is advancing a joint cost-shared feasibility study with the Government of Canada to replace the nearby Sea Falls Ferry with a permanent bridge.
