The grain elevator at “mile 10.6” was built by Federal Grain in 1962. This elevator was located just west of the Perimeter Highway crossing of Wilkes Avenue by La Fleche Road. The elevator was later sold to Manitoba Pool, who operated it until around 2000 (More information here).
It was called “Mile 10.6” because it was at mile 10.6 of the CN Rivers subdivision – 10.6 miles west of downtown Winnipeg. (See also Mile 142.4)
