The government of Manitoba wants the Manitoba Floodway Authority to oversee construction of a new all-season on the east side of Lake Winnipeg.
First Nations communities on the east side of the lake want to be able to link to each other by a permanent road. The government has introduced legislation to enable the Floodway Authority to assume responsibility for constructing the 170-kilometre road from PR 304 near Manigotagan to Bloodvein First Nation and through to Berens River First Nation.
The government is also looking at improving the transportation infrastructure of the rest of the entire region.
The name of the Manitoba Floodway Authority will be changed to the Manitoba Floodway and East Side Road Authority.
