The province announced Tuesday that Highway 83 in the Asessippi Valley has been re-opened to traffic.
It had been closed for repairs, near PR 366 north of Russell, due to a large sinkhole.
The road caved in during July 2012, with the hole being more than eight metres deep and 200 metres in length.
The road runs between Roblin and Russell.
