The Henderson Highway North Improvements Study is looking to improve safety, traffic flow, and livability along Henderson Highway from Gilmore Avenue to the north city limit at Glenway Avenue.

This study is unique, as Henderson Highway serves many purposes as a major city route, neighbourhood connecter, and residential corridor that transports people, goods and services with diverse needs.

Background

As Winnipeg continues to grow, the Henderson Highway corridor needs to be upgraded to meet the current and future needs of Winnipeggers. Henderson Highway is a vital transportation connection, and has been designated by the Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies as a multi-modal corridor. It is one of the city’s main travel corridors, serving passenger vehicles, trucks, transit, pedestrians, and cyclists alike.

The project includes:

  • Investigating pavement condition, utilities, land drainage, and traffic characteristics
  • Planning for replacement of the existing Bunn’s Creek crossing
  • Accommodating the safe, efficient, and accessible movement of goods and people on foot and using mobility aids, bikes, buses, passenger vehicles, and trucks
  • Designing a solution that installs a median, improves intersections, and manages access onto and off of Henderson Highway to improve safety and efficiency for all users

The objective of the study is to develop a preliminary design for the proposed improvements to the study area. The project will take into consideration input collected through: meetings with key stakeholders, stakeholder group meetings; online public engagement; public design workshops; and information sessions throughout the project.

    The Henderson Highway North Improvements Study is looking for input from you!

    The Henderson Highway North Improvements Study is starting and we want to hear about your experience as a road user and what improvements you would like to see through the area.

    Our first task is to meet with directly impacted property owners (to gather property-specific information) and to hear from Winnipeggers about existing conditions and issues in the area. We are asking the public to identify current issues and experiences on the interactive map. The interactive map will be available until November 6, 2021.

    The input collected during Phase 1 of public engagement will help the project team create a functional design. A functional design is used to support some early decision making and to support the next level of design but not construction.

    We expect to have a functional design to share with you in early 2022. Sign-up to follow the project and stay informed!
