The Yellowhead Route Near Russell

The Yellowhead Route, a more northerly route across Canada than the Trans-Canada Highway, diverges from the latter west of Portage la Prairie, then passes by Neepawa, Minnedosa, and Russell and on into Saskatchewan. Shown here is PTH 45 1 that follows the township line between townships 20 and 21, then bypasses Russell 2 to the south 3 and becomes Highway 16 4 (part of the Yellowhead Route) to the west. PTH 41 5 from the south, bypasses Russell to the west and becomes PTH 83 to the north 6. Both PTH 41 and PTH 83 follow north/south section lines.

Russell’s location at the intersection of north/south and east/west routes has aided its economic development (population of 1428 in 2006).

Also visible are railway lines: the CP line 7 runs through Russell and then north to Inglis; the CN line 8 enters Russell from the east and runs northwest to Shellmouth.
