Provincial Trunk Highway 75 (PTH 75, also officially known as the Lord Selkirk Highway) is a main route from Winnipeg, Manitoba to the U.S. border, where it abuts (but no longer connects to) U.S. Route 75 near the community of Emerson, Manitoba. Prior to the numbering system, PTH 75 was the northern leg of the Jefferson Highway also known as the Palm to Pine Highway since it ended in New Orleans.
The highway is about 103 km (64 mi) long, and is used as a main route for those travelling between Winnipeg and the United States. PTH 75 consisted of two lanes south of Morris until approximately 1992 when a four-lane divided highway was built to the United States border. Once inside Winnipeg the highway is known as Winnipeg Route 42 or Pembina Hwy.
PTH 75 begins at the Emerson-Noyes border crossing on the east side of the Red River, passes Emerson, then crosses the river to the west and meets with PTH 29 at Emerson Junction less than 1 km north of the U.S. border. All U.S.-bound traffic joins Highway 29 at this point to follow it to Interstate 29. This is because although PTH 75 itself continues to the border as well to meet the older US 75, the entry to Canada from US Highway 75 was closed in 2005 to consolidate resources and the American port of entry followed suit one year later. Travelers wishing to continue south to US 75 must now take Interstate 29 south to North Dakota Highway 59, then east to Minnesota State Highway 171, which connects to US 75.
The entire route is a 4-lane divided highway, but access is not fully controlled. Proposals do exist to upgrade the highway to an expressway or freeway standard with bypasses at Morris and St. Norbert.
On February 27, 2008 the Manitoba Highway Traffic Board approved a request by the Government of Manitoba to raise the speed limit on Highway 75 in Manitoba to 110km/h (68/70 MPH) on most sections between Winnipeg and the US border . The speed limit change took effect on July 1, 2009, where the speed limit was raised to 110km/h only from St. Jean Baptiste to the Canada-U.S. border. The rest of the highway is still not set to the new speed and remains at 100km/h, though this might change in the future .
Remainder of Highway- 100 km/h (60/65 mph)
Morris- 50 - 80 km/h (31 mph)
Canada-U.S. border to St. Jean Baptiste- 110 km/h (68/70 mph)
