Manitoba provincial highways


Provincial Trunk Highway 10 (PTH 10) is a major north-south highway that runs in the western region of the province of Manitoba, Canada.

PTH 10 begins at the International Peace Garden along the Canada - US border near Boissevain. The highway runs north through Brandon, Dauphin, Swan River, and The Pas to the Saskatchewan boundary at Flin Flon. The speed limit is 100 km/h.

Between Dauphin and The Pas, Highway 10 is designated as the Northern Woods and Water Route. The highway also serves as the main route through Riding Mountain National Park.

At 847 km (526 mi) in length, PTH 10 is currently the longest highway in the province.[1][2]


While PTH 10 has largely maintained the same length and configuration for most of its history, the highway has had a few fairly significant reconfigurations in its time, particularly along the section between Brandon and Minnedosa.

Within Brandon, 18th Street between Victoria Avenue and the current junction with PTH 1 was designated as part of PTH 10 when PTH 1 was included as part of the Trans-Canada Highway system in 1962 and the highway was reconfigured accordingly. Prior to this, PTH 10 met PTH 1 at the intersection of 18th Street and Victoria Avenue. The two highways would then run in concurrence along Victoria Avenue and 1st Street following the route currently designated as PTH 1A until PTH 10 turned north at an intersection approximately 500 metres east of its current junction. The highway would rejoin its current configuration approximately 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) north of the old intersection.

The section of PTH 10 between its current junction with PTH 24/PR 262 at Tremaine and eastbound PTH 16 was constructed and opened to traffic in 1962. Prior to this, the highway turned east approximately 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) south of the current junction. PTH 24 (known as PTH 27 prior to 1956) would travel 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) past its current eastbound terminus to meet PTH 10. From this point, the highway traveled east for 7 kilometres (4.3 mi) before turning north and traveling for 12 kilometres (7.5 mi), meeting eastbound PTH 16 (known as PTH 4 prior to 1977) 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) south of Minnedosa. The two highways ran in concurrence from this junction through Minnedosa along what is now PTH 16A to its current northbound/westbound junction. The current highway was shortened by 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) in 1971 to its current junction with eastbound PTH 16 with the construction of the Minnedosa bypass.

The original section of PTH 10 was redesignated as PR 262 when the provincial government implemented its secondary highway system in the mid to late 1960s.
