NORWAY HOUSE CREE NATION, MAN. – The Manitoba government is investing $21.5 million into a multi-year infrastructure investment for Norway House Cree Nation.

The proposed project would repave approximately 30 kilometres of provincial roads that go through and connect both Norway House Cree Nation and the Norway House community and includes the restoration of Provincial Road 373.

Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure is also advancing a joint cost-shared feasibility study with the federal government to replace the nearby Sea Falls Ferry with a permanent bridge.
