Highway 75 has also reopened between Winnipeg and the US border.

Blizzard warnings have now been lifted for southwest Manitoba.
Blizzard conditions are expected to last until Thursday in northern communities like Churchill.
Environment Canada Meteorologist Dan Fulton says it’s incredible just how much snow fell in some parts of Manitoba.
“Areas in southwest Manitoba received anywhere from 20-40 centimetres of snow, as you start getting north into The Pas, Flin Flon area we’re estimating anywhere from 40-60 centimetres,” he says. “In Thompson we’re estimating even more. Anywhere from 50-80 centimetres look like its fallen in Thompson…it is unprecedented.”
Fulton says they’ll need more accurate measurements after the storm to determine whether we’ve broken any snowfall records.
He does say high winds in Winnipeg will die down Wednesday afternoon but temperatures will still be very cold with wind chills in the minus double digits for the next handful of days. It could be Tuesday of next week before temperatures get back to normal.
