PTH 6 PTH 8

Provincial Trunk Highway 7 (PTH 7) is a provincial highway in the Canadian province of Manitoba. It runs from the north limit of the city of Winnipeg (where it meets with Route 90/Brookside Blvd.) north to Arborg, Manitoba where it intersects with PTH 68. The highway is twinned from Winnipeg to just north of PTH 67, an east-west route that provides access to the Town of Stonewall.

History[edit]

PTH 7 first appeared on the 1928 Manitoba Highway Map as a short feeder route connecting Stonewall and Winnipeg.[2] When PTH 6 was opened to traffic in 1947, it incorporated a small portion of the original PTH 7. That same year, a second leg of PTH 7 was opened connecting Stony Mountain to Teulon.[3]

PTH 7 was rerouted through Stony Mountain in 1951, bypassing Stonewall completely.[4] It extended further north to the village of Komaroo the following year,[5] and to Fraserwood in 1955.[6]

In 1956, PTH 7 was extended west of Fraserwood on to what is now PTH 17 as far as Narcisse.[7] The highway was extended to Chatfield the following year,[8] before reaching PTH 68 at Poplarfield in 1959.[9] PTH 7 was extended to Fisher Branch in 1960.[10]

In 1966, PTH 7 was reconfigured to its current northern terminus with PTH 68 at Arborg from Fraserwood, and the route between Fraserwood and Fisher Branch was redesignated as PTH 16.[11] The original route was given its current PTH 17 designation in 1977.
