Route 90 is a major north-south arterial route in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. It begins at the south Perimeter Highway (PTH 100) and ends at the city's northwest limit, where it continues north as PTH 7. Route 90 is designated as the city's airport route, as it passes by Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport.[1]

Route 90 follows Kenaston Boulevard between the south Perimeter Highway and the Assiniboine River, through the suburbs of Fort Garry and Tuxedo. As it croses north of the river, Route 90 enters St. James and follows Century Street to St. Matthews Avenue. Between St. Matthews and Dublin Avenues, it splits into separate one-way streets, with Century as the northbound and King Edward Street as the southbound. The two converge near Dublin Street and follow King Edward to the CP Carberry line underpass, after which Route 90 follows Oak Point Highway and later Brookside Boulevard before leaving the city and becoming PTH 7 approximately one kilometer south of the north Perimeter Highway (PTH 101).

Kenaston Boulevard is named after E. C. Kenaston, who was responsible for the development of Tuxedo, one of the main suburbs the street passes through. Oak Point Highway in Winnipeg is an unattached remnant of an old road leading to Oak Point, Manitoba, which is now part of PTH 6.[2]
