Provincial Trunk Highway 75

PTH 75 serves as the northern part of the primary ground transportation link between Winnipeg and the U.S.A. and is used heavily by truckers and weekend shoppers travelling from Winnipeg to Grand Forks and/or Fargo. It is divided and twinned for most of its length and, outside of Winnipeg, the only low-speed zones are in the towns of Morris and Emerson. Click here to show the route.
 
When the trunk highway system was being developed in January 1924, this route was numbered as PTH 14, but was renumbered to PTH 75 between 1940 and 1955 to match US 75 in Minnesota. Ironically, since the closing of the Canadian border crossing at the eastern end of Emerson and the US border crossing near Noyes, MN, the two highways no longer intersect.
 
In 2012, the routing of PTH 75 was changed to follow the former PTH 29 directly to the US border. The former routing turned east just north of the US border and crossed the Red River into Emerson. That portion of the route is now part of PR 200.
 
Northern Terminus: Junction of Route 62 (Osborne Street) in Winnipeg.
 
Southern Terminus: US border at Emerson.
