Historic Highway #1

Route 44 or as it became recognized in 2007, Historic Highway #1 was part of the first national highway system in Canada, even before the current Trans-Canada Highway in Manitoba.  Historic Highway #1 provided a key link in the movement of people and goods across Canada through Manitoba and played an integral role in Manitoba’s economic development and Western Canada's growth.  Historic Highway #1 runs from Lockport to West Hawk Lake.
