Provincial Road 394 (PR 394) is a provincial road in the Canadian province of Manitoba. It runs from Highway 391 and 396 in Lynn Lake to the Saskatchewan border and continues as Highway 994, which terminates less than a mile later at Kinoosao. The Lynn Lake International Airport is on this road, as well many lakes. PR 394 is the northernmost road in Manitoba, the next being PR 290.
Road 394 begins in Lynn Lake, Manitoba at roads 391 and 396. The road begins northward, intersecting with PR 398, which dead ends soon after beginning at 394. The road then doesn't intersect until its terminus at the Saskatchewan border near Kinoosao, where it becomes Highway 994. 394 in its entire length of 60.3 miles (97 km) is in the Marcel Colomb First Nation. Very few intersections exist on the road and only 1 is for a provincial route or a provincial highway. PR 394 goes through the Sisipuk-Kamuchawe Range near Vandekerckhove Lake, but the road has little effect on the caribou living in the area.
On January 28, 2000, the government of Canada released info on a new winter route that would link three First Nation towns together. The project was 440 kilometres long and planned on extending Road 394 from Lynn Lake to Brochet, Lac Brochet and Tadoule Lake. The government of Manitoba produced $550,000 of $80 million for the paving of PR 394 and the nearby PR 397 in Lynn Lake. This $80 million was to help generate over 3000 jobs in Manitoba.
