Highway 994 is a provincial highway in the far north region of the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. One of the province's shortest highways, it is approximately 1.1 kilometres (0.68 mi) long.[1][2] Highway 994 provides access to the isolated community of Kinoosao.[3] Due to its geographic location, it is the only provincial highway in Saskatchewan that requires entering the neighboring province of Manitoba to travel it. The route begins at the shores of Reindeer Lake in Kinoosao and heads eastward a short distance to the provincial line, where it continues eastward as Manitoba Provincial Road 394 towards Lynn Lake, Manitoba.

Route description[edit]

Highway 994 officially starts at the Manitoba/Saskatchewan border where Provincial Road 394 ends. About 1.1 kilometres (0.68 mi) from the border, Highway 994 passes through the community of Kinoosao. Highway 994 ends 400 metres (1,300 ft) later, on the shore of Reindeer Lake, as the means of access to the largest employer in the region, the fish processing plant.[3][4]

Future[edit]

There were plans to build replace a bridge along Highway 994 along Reindeer Lake in Kinoosao during the 2008-09 fiscal year.[5]

Major intersections[edit]

The entire route is in Kinoosao, Northern Saskatchewan County.
