Manitoba's highway map has been upgraded to provide more details on the 511 traveller information system, Infrastructure and Transportation Minister Steve Ashton said today.
The map is also available online, which shows an overview of the province. Users can then select specific regions, which can be enlarged to provide more detail and downloaded.
The new map also features a local artist Glenn Hayes painting of a Manitoba highway scene.
"We continue to use the provincial highway map, which is distributed free of charge, to boost tourism opportunities in Manitoba," Ashton said.
The new map has been updated to include details on how to access road information through the 511 system and Twitter @MBGovRoads, and to show five new recently created provincial parks.
The maps are free and Travel Manitoba distributes them at various locations such as travel information centres, The Forks and border crossings. They are also available through CAA Manitoba, chambers of commerce and offices of Manitoba Infrastructure and Transportation.
