North East Exchange District Engineering Study (2014)

An open house for the North East Exchange District Study was held on Wednesday, June 18, 2014 at Pantages Theatre.

Your input will help inform the prioritization of future infrastructure improvements in the North East Exchange District. Thank you for your participation.

Background:

In recent years, the North East Exchange (see map below) has seen significant growth pressures, placing a greater demand on the area’s roadways, services, and pedestrian/cycling facilities. The City of Winnipeg recently retained MMM Group to conduct a study for the area that will provide the City with a blueprint for providing prioritized, coordinated infrastructure improvements (roads, sidewalks, bike paths, street furniture, underground services, landscaping, etc.) to the area over the next 10 years.

Study Area


Objectives:

The objectives of the plan are to:

  • Ensure the rights-of-way are compatible with the anticipated land use.
  • Ensure all planned surface works are coordinated with planned underground improvements.
  • Ensure the area is walkable and accessible.
  • Provide recommendations to improve the rideability, drainage and condition of the pavement for the streets in the area.
  • Ensure public transit amenities are accessible and available.
  • Identify any improvements to bicycle parking or facilities.
  • Ensure the design conforms to Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) principles.
  • Provide sustainable and practical solutions for new tree installations, street lighting and other amenities.
  • Determine future loading needs and on street parking supply.
