Welcome!

Clearwater Bay is the first area of open water that you will see on Lake of the Woods, when driving eastward on the TransCanada from Winnipeg.

Clearwater Bay is considered the prime address for cottages on Lake of the Woods. Quick access from Winnipeg being the main reason. However, the location has lots to offer for both cottagers and vistors alike.

We welcome you to visit our site often and keep up with what's happening in Clearwater Bay, Lake of the Woods.

Highway twinning for Clearwater Bay summer residents

A 10-kilometre stretch of the TransCanada Highway at the Manitoba-Ontario border, a route taken by many Clearwater Bay cottagers all summer long will be expanded from two to four lanes. In the summer, traffic almost doubles from 4,000 vehicles a day to 7,000. Twinning the highway will create a safer roadway for both area residents and holiday travellers to the Kenora tourist region.

The construction of the passing lanes approved earlier, will be halted until new plans are drawn up for the twinning of the highway. However, paving will be completed on the section of highway from the border to the Rush Bay turn off. The $100-million upgrade to twin the highway is scheduled to begin next year, pending environmental assessment.

A route planning and design study is now underway to expand an additional 30 kilometres between the border and Kenora. Clearwater Bay cottagers and other area residents should be sure to watch the local papers and radio stations for information on public information sessions to be held on the progress of the plans for the highway.
