Skip Navigation LinksHome > Manitoba > PTH 4

PTH 4 runs west-east connecting PTH 9/9A north west of Selkirk to PTH 59, crossing the Red River at the so-called “Bridge to Nowhere”. The bridge itself rises 25 meters above the level at PR 320 on the west side of the Red River and is in no danger of being flooded by the annual spring rise of the river it crosses. It is the northernmost bridge that crosses the Red River and is one of only three bridges that crosses the river north of the Perimeter Highway.
 
This route has no connection to the former PTH 4 that ran along present-day PTH 44 and PTH 9 only a few miles away. Given the current route's proximity to the former PTH 4, it was foolish to re-use the number for this new highway, particularly in light of the teeming supply of available two-digit numbers for a provincial trunk highway.
 
Western Terminus: Junction of PTH 9/9A north west of Selkirk.
 
Eastern Terminus: Junction of PTH 59 in the RM of St. Clements.
 
Multiplexes: None.
