Highway Traffic Board


The Highway Traffic Board was put in place to ensure the safety of the traveling public and protection of highway infrastructure through the administration of the Highways Protection Act and portions of the Highway Traffic Act.


The Board establishes and removes control lines adjacent to limited access highways and designates limited access highways. The Highway Traffic Board issues permits for access onto limited access highways and development/structures adjacent to these highways. It also establishes speed limits throughout the Province including the City of Winnipeg. The Board approves traffic control devices and their design, municipal weight by-laws, bridge closures and restrictions, highway classification and by-laws for parking in alley ways. The Board conducts public hearings on all the above as well as on current issues; makes orders and regulations, and provides policy input to the Minister.
