The Town of
The area shown lies in townships 14 and 15 with the fourth correction line between them. The amount of the correction—about 3,500 feet (1066 m)—can be seen by tracing the range line between ranges 15 and 16 WI 10 north to the correction line where it jogs to the west 11.
The main transport routes all avoid downtown Neepawa. The CN line 12, which is best seen in the south, passes to the west of town, and the CP line 13 skirts the north. Neepawa is unusual in that the railway line nearest to it runs north/south and outside the main built-up area. Highway 16—the Yellowhead Route 14—runs through the southern edge of town; and PTH 5 15 enters from the south, follows Highway 16 west for a mile, then branches off to the north well to the west of town 16. Also seen are a western branch line of the CN 17 with a Hutterite Colony on it 18, the town’s airfield 19 with the characteristic triangular shape, and the sewage lagoons 20.
