A milestone for the Freedom Road from Shoal Lake.
The last section of the Freedom Road was completed yesterday as the connection was made with Highway 1 in Manitoba.
The gravel road connects the island community of Shoal Lake #40 with the mainland.
The final price tag is expected to be over $40 million with costs being shared between the federal government, the government of Manitoba and the City of Winnipeg.
The Freedom road still isn’t officially open.
Construction crews are still doing the finishing work on the road bed.
While a ceremony took place Friday afternoon to mark the occasion, a community celebration and feast will take place on October 11th.
