Ongoing Opportunities for Engagement with the City of Winnipeg
Osborne to Downtown Walk Bike Bridge and Connections warming hut
Thank you to those who attended the workshop on January 25, submitted a postcard through a coffee shop box, or completed a survey. We are currently considering the input provided in the first phase of engagement.
Visit the Pontagon warming hut, designed by University of Manitoba Faculty of Architecture students and placed on the Assiniboine River at the approximate location of the proposed Pedestrian/Cycling Bridge. The structure will provide an opportunity to think about the project and provide feedback for how you see this connection and others in the City bringing people together.
For more information, please visit winnipeg.ca/walkbikeprojects.
Adjustable bike lane curbs pilot
The City installed adjustable bike lane curbs in two locations to test installation methods, monitor maintenance, and assess the comfort level of users. For more information, to fill out a survey or to view a map of the changes online, please visitwinnipeg.ca/walkbikeprojects and select an adjustable bike lane curbs project. The survey will be open for the duration of the pilot project.
Pembina Highway speed limit review
Thank you to those who attended the information session on November 30, 2017 and completed an online survey. There were approximately 35 community members in attendance at the event and approximately 600 surveys were completed in total (online and in-person). The survey was open from November 16, 2017 to December 7, 2017.
The public engagement summary is now available online. The public engagement summary was submitted as an administrative report for Standing Policy Committee on Infrastructure Renewal and Public Works (SPC-IRPW) consideration. SPC-IRPW approved the Public Service’s recommendation; the City will now apply to the Provincial Highway Traffic Board to change the speed limit.
