Route 42 is a major arterial road located in Winnipeg, Manitoba. It connects the suburbs of North Kildonan, East Kildonan, Fort Rouge, Fort Garry, and St. Norbert with the city's downtown core. In the north, it is a continuation of Manitoba Provincial Road 204; in the south, it is a continuation of PTH 75, also known as the Lord Selkirk Highway.

Route description[edit]

The route begins at PTH 75 and Turbell Drive in the suburb of St. Norbert and, as Pembina Highway, crosses the Perimeter Highway South, and runs north-northwest through Fort Garry (passing by the University of Manitoba). At Confusion Corner, it takes the name Donald Street until it crosses the Assiniboine River at the Midtown Bridge, and splits into one-way streets where southbound traffic continues along Donald Street and northbound traffic follows Smith Street. At Notre Dame Avenue, it becomes King Street (northbound) and Princess Street (southbound) until it crosses Main Street and becomes the Disraeli Freeway, continuing northeast, passing through the neighbourhood of Point Douglas and crosses the Red River at the Disraeli Bridge, where it becomes Henderson Highway. Running north along the east bank of the Red River, it passes Hespeler Avenue and Chief Peguis Trail to Perimeter Highway North where it leaves the city as Provincial Road 204.
