The City of Winnipeg (the City) is committed to building pedestrian and cycling infrastructure for people of all ages and abilities. Building on the Council-approved Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies, this project is exploring options to improve travel choices, accessibility, and connectivity between the Esplanade Riel Footbridge / Provencher Bridge and the multi-use path on Archibald Street south of Nairn Avenue. The study will also include connections to the Southeast Corridor, Taché Promenade, and Notre Dame Street active transportation bridge over the Seine River.

    The Phase 2 public engagement summary and appendices are now available and provide an overview of the feedback collected for the project.

    The second phase of public engagement helped the project team understand preferences for preliminary route and design options.

    What we heard in Phase 2 will be used to help evaluate the three options west of the Seine River to determine a recommended route connecting the Esplanade Riel Footbridge/Provencher Bridge to the Seine River and refine the design that is ultimately recommended. Feedback on the recommended route east of the Seine River will help to refine the proposed design. The recommended routes, west and east of the Seine River, will be presented to the public in Phase 3 of public engagement.

    Thank you to everyone who has taken time to provide feedback. In Phase 1 (August 27 - September 23, 2020) we asked you to to tell us where you like to cycle and why and where you would like to see pedestrians and cycling improvements. We heard from a wide range of citizens; receiving over 390 online surveys, 88 pins on the online map and walked and talked with more than 20 participants who joined us on a Tour it Tuesday walking tour.

    This fall, the project team will develop preliminary design options which we will share with you later this year for further feedback along with how feedback so far has informed the design. Please subscribe to the project to receive project updates.

    by Admin1,

    The St. Boniface to Downtown Walk Bike project is starting and we want your feedback!

    Our public engagement goals for this project are to:

    • Work with residents and stakeholders (businesses, schools, and organizations in the area) to ensure concerns with and aspirations for pedestrian and cycling improvements are reflected in the design.
    • Allow for a variety of engagement opportunities to ensure the process is open and transparent and captures the broadest range of feedback.
    • Provide all public engagement and communications materials in French and English.
    • Provide clear links between public and stakeholder feedback and decisions made.

    In Phase 1, we want to know how you travel through the project area and what we could do to improve travel choices, safety, accessibility, and connectivity. This input will be used along with technical information to develop options that will be presented for further public feedback during Phase 2.

    You can get involved by:

    • Taking a short survey
    • Providing location-specific feedback through the mapping tool
    • Attending a “Tour-it Tuesday” event

    The survey and mapping tool are open until September 23, 2020.
