Highway To Manitoba Will Be Twinned

Highway Will Be Twinned

WINNIPEG - The highway between the Manitoba border and Kenora, Ontario will finally be twinned.

The Ontario government has signed on the dotted line with Indigenous groups in the Kenora area after talking about the project for over a decade.

The first phase will see a six kilometer stretch of Highway 17 double in size from the border to Gundy Road.

Phase two is 8.5 kilometres between Highway 673 and Rush Bay Road.

That will be followed by a 24 kilometre run from Rush Bay Road to the Kenora By-Pass.

Kenora Conservative MPP Greg Rickford says funding is in place for the phase one and he hopes Ottawa will help with the other two phases.
