Chief Peguis Trail Extension West
From Main Street to Brookside Boulevard
From 2014 to 2016, a Functional Design Study was conducted for the Chief Peguis Trail (CPT) Extension West. The intent of the study was to gain insight into the use and expectations for the CPT Extension West from Main Street to Brookside Boulevard. The CPT Extension West will be approximately 10 kilometers in length and will support economic development, create recreational opportunities, and support the completion of the Strategic Inner Ring Road to reduce traffic on neighborhood streets to make them more accommodating for public transit, walking and cycling.
A Preliminary Design Study is now being completed for the CPT Extension West.
The Preliminary Design Study will recommend a final design for the CPT Extension West from Main Street to Brookside Boulevard. The design will:
- Provide efficient traffic flow on CPT;
- Relieve traffic on neighbourhood streets;
- Provide connections to surrounding neighbourhoods;
- Include pedestrian and cycling infrastructure along the route and connections to community destinations;
- Include potential locations for public art; and,
- Limit the loss of higher quality natural areas.

The intent of the public engagement process for the Preliminary Design Study is to provide information and collect local feedback to:
- Inform the community of the intended plans;
- Help plan pedestrian and cycling infrastructure and amenities;
- Help identify connections to community destinations;
- Ensure the project complements adjacent development;
- Address the requirements of the Environmental License; and,
- Meet with affected landowners and identify property requirements.

From 2014 to 2016, four public engagement events were held to collect feedback for the Chief Peguis Trail Extension West Functional Design Study. A public information session held on June 29, 2016 at Red River Community Centre had 244 people in attendance. An online survey closed on July 12, 2016 with 84 responses. Comments received through this public engagement process indicated a repeated desire for an uninterrupted flow of traffic and fewer traffic lights; this feedback was considered in the latest phase of the design.

At the end of this study, a public engagement report will be shared on this website.
