Canadian Navigable Waters Act – Wollaston Lake Winter Road

Work on the Wollaston Lake winter road, August 2021.

The Ministry of Highways is designing a new road to service the northern community of Wollaston Lake. In the winter months, the community is only accessible via land by an annually constructed ice road. A new winter road would provide improved, reliable road access and could be the first step toward creating an all-season road at some point in the future.

As part of this work, a bridge would be installed to cross the Redman River at the north end of Compulsion Bay, approximately 28 kilometres south of Wollaston Lake. Because this bridge would cross the river, approval must be granted by the federal Minister of Transport. Part of that approval process includes collecting comments from the public on the potential impact of this work on marine navigation in the region.

The collecting of these comments has now been completed.

View the full notice.
