The Marion Street corridor is a major route, connecting neighbourhoods and transporting people, goods, and services. The City of Winnipeg is undertaking the functional design phase of the Moving on Marion, which aims to determine how to improve roadway, traffic flow, safety, and livability aspects of Marion Street from St. Mary’s Road to Lagimodière Boulevard, and Lagimodière, from Marion to Dugald Road.

    Phase 2 public engagement is now underway and we want to hear from you!

    We want your input on:

    • Features that could enhance neighbourhood vibrance and livability along the west section
    • New cycling infrastructure options in the Marion-Goulet couplet area and at Happyland Park
    • Improvements to the Youville-Marion-Goulet intersection


    We would also like to tell you about the proposed solutions we have developed for a few key areas based on engineering best practices and traffic analysis. These areas include:

    • Roadway realignment on Youville
    • Improvements at the Marion-Archibald, Marion-Panet-Dawson, and Marion- Lagimodière/Dugald intersections

    Take the survey

    Take the online survey until April 28, 2022.

    Virtual Engagement Sessions

    We are hosting two online events that will provide a discussion space for you to learn more and provide input. These virtual sessions will look at the corridor's specific West or East areas and show the proposed design solutions and improvements. You can attend whichever one you are most interested in – or both!

    We also reached out to landowners in the areas where proposed solutions have property impacts and continue to meet with those residents to inform them and understand their concerns.

    Event #1: Moving on Marion Street – West Segment
    Date: Tuesday, April 19, 2022
    Time: 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
    Format: Zoom Virtual Event
    Register: Register here

    When looking at the Marion-Goulet couplet – or West Segment – of the project area, we are looking to create a roadway that allows pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists to move around safely, while enhancing the comfort and livability of the neighbourhood.

    Event #2: Moving on Marion Street – East Segment
    Date: Wednesday, April 20, 2022
    Time: 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
    Format: Zoom Virtual Event

    Work on the East Segment – from Youville to Lagimodière – is focusing on finding minimally invasive, cost-effective engineering solutions to intersections and roadways to improve crossings, traffic flow, and safety, while also incorporating pedestrian and cycling infrastructure.

    Both technical and public engagement assignments were awarded to consultants in early 2020. Building off what we heard during Phase 1 public engagement, we began investigating design concepts and will hold stakeholder meetings over the next few months. Phase 2 public engagement activities are planned for broad public participation in Fall 2021.

    Request for Proposal (RFP) No. 888-2019 Professional Consulting Services for the Marion Street Corridor Improvements Study will begin the next phase of the study. The study will continue to seek public input through a secondary RFP NO. 887-2019 for Public Engagement Services for the Marion Street Corridor Improvements Study. The RFP for public engagement will be issued after the study RFP is awarded.

    Transitioning into the new study

    In 2019, the public and stakeholders provided feedback before the new study begins to ensure the scope and scale are consistent with community needs. In June 2019, 108 people joined the project team at a listening and mapping session at Archwood Community Club and 384 participants complete the online survey and mapping tool.

    • Online survey: Launched on March 2, 2017, it remained open until March 24, 2017. A total of 404 surveys were submitted to the City.
    • Stakeholder interviews: Interviews were conducted by telephone from March 13, 2017 to March 31, 2017. A total of 29 telephone interviews were conducted with stakeholders.


    Further analysis of public feedback is available with a public engagement summary and public engagement report now available under the documents tab.

    Results from the 2019 engagement program confirmed the direction of the upcoming study and helped identify areas where improvements are needed/could be most impactful:

    • Improved infrastructure for active transportation including bike lanes and streetscaping elements
    • Preservation of the Happyland Park property and minimal impact in the vicinity of the Marion and Archibald Intersection
    • Current and future traffic conditions around the proposed redevelopment of the former Canada Packers Lands
    • Signal timing optimization and geometric review of roads for improvements to safety and traffic flow
    • The Public Service will engage with CP Rail about trains crossing Marion east of Archibald to determine if there are opportunities to lessen the impact of train delays on road users


    Moving on Marion Street’s public engagement components will be carried out in accordance with the feedback
