Metro Route 90
Route 90 runs north to south from PTH 101 to Route 165 (Bishop Grandin Boulevard). It is perhaps the most well known of the routes in Winnipeg's route system and the only one that is locally referred to by the route number. Plans are being discussed for a widening of Route 90 on Kenaston Boulevard between Taylor and Ness Avenues, click here for more information on the Route 90 study.
 
Northern Terminus: Junction of PTH 7/PTH 101 north of Winnipeg in the RM of Rosser.
 
Southern Terminus: Route 90 formerly ended at Bishop Grandin Boulevard (Route 165), but is in the process of being extended south towards the Perimeter Highway (PTH 100).

Pictures are arranged from north to south. Click here to show the northbound route and here to show the southbound route.

City of Winnipeg Northbound view on Century Street at Silver Avenue showing the sign for Route 90 Sales. This auto dealer formerly used the authentic Route 90 symbol in the signage, but later changed to a poor knock-off. In all probabilty, the business owner had tried to trademark the authentic symbol, which would have been impossible.
