Provincial Highway 14 (also known as Highway 14 or PTH 14) by the Manitoba Infrastructure and Transportation is a Regional Transportation Advisory Committee RTAC Route of Manitoba. The RTAC route is capable of handling RTAC vehicles such as a truck, a truck and pony trailer, a truck and full trailer, a truck tractor and semi-trailer, an A-train, a B-train, or a C-train.[1] PTH 14 is a 2 lane high-speed rural highway (100 km/h) and carries relatively high traffic volumes of approximately 1800 vehicles per day.[2]

The 2001 Average Annual Daily Traffic

(AADT) in the vicinity of Altona is 2380 taken north of PR 201

and 3050 AADT south of the PTH 14/PR 201 intersection.[3]

The route extends west to east from its junction with PTH 3 to its junction with PTH 75, the Lord Selkirk Highway.[4] The western terminus of PTH 14 is located at the PTH 3 turn. The westerly leg of PTH 3 continues the route of PTH 14. The eastern terminus is at the T-intersection with PTH 75, the Lord Selkirk Highway. The Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) runs through Winkler, Manitoba continuing south and parallel to PTH 14 until Plum Coulee where it intersects PTH 14 and runs north and parallel to PTH 14 until Rosenfeld where the CPR diverges north.[5] The highway is twinned its junction with PTH 3 PTH 32. The twinning continues westerly to the city of Morden along PTH 3.[6]

Route description[edit]

The land is shaped by the prehistoric Lake Agassiz and there is rich agricultural land located below the Pembina Escarpment which was the shorelines of this ancient lake.[7] Winkler is a thriving city of 8,500 providing south central Manitoba with an urban shopping centre.[8] The town of Plum Coulee is located on the western flood plains of the Red River Valley. The Plum Coulee & District Museum features the area's local history.[9] In 1884, the rural municipality of Rhineland began as Douglas before changing names in 1891.[10] Horndean is a small area between Plum Coulee and Rosenfeld. The Rural Municipality of Montcalm is located in the Red River Valley and the Lord Selkirk Highway connects with three other provincial trunk highways in the R.M. The Lord Selkirk connects Pembina, North Dakota, United States with the capital city of Manitoba, Winnipeg.[10]

Prior to 1949, Highway 14 was the designation of the highway from Winnipeg to Emerson, which is now PTH 75.[11]

PTH 14 was designated to its current route in 1950.
