River Road to Rivergate Drive Connection

Study, Design

The City of Winnipeg is preparing a design for a new walking and cycling path that will run along the bank of the Red River from River Road to Rivergate Drive. The pathway would provide a safe and comfortable connection to future pedestrian and cycling infrastructure in the area. Due to riverbank instability in the area, the project would require riverbank stabilization.


Thank you to those who attended meetings and provided feedback through the online comment form. The comment form was open from November 2 to December 17, 2017 and we received 36 responses.

Each year, a Pedestrian and Cycling Action Plan is developed outlining the Public Service’s annual recommendations for spending the yearly capital budget associated with walking and cycling. On May 18, 2016, City Council approved the 2016 Pedestrian and Cycling Action Plan authorizing the Public Service to proceed with this project.

Frequently Asked Questions

Open all | Close all

When will this be constructed?
Currently no funding has been identified for this project.
How much will this connection cost?
As part of this project, a class 3 cost estimate (expected level of accuracy of +30% to -20%) will be developed.
What about previous work that looked into a crossing over the Red River?
The City previously conducted a study to explore a possible crossing over the Red River in this area. At this time, the City does not have any plans for a crossing over the Red River, therefore a crossing is not a consideration for this project.
If stabilization is required, could that work happen independently of the walking cycling path?
If stabilization is required, stabilization will only be completed in conjunction with the construction of the walking cycling path.
What areas does this path connect?
The path would connect River Road to St. Mary’s Avenue between Rivergate Drive and Britannica Road. A connection to Henteleff Park may be considered in the future.
Will people be able to use the path at night?
The path may be used at night and some pedestrian lighting may be considered as part of the design.
Will you be removing any trees?
If the project moves forward, some trees will have to be removed to complete the bank stabilization.
What are the City of Winnipeg Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies?
On July 15, 2015, City Council adopted the Winnipeg Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies. This document stems from the 2011 Transportation Master Plan. The Strategies provide a long-range policy framework for active modes of transportation in Winnipeg for the next 20 years. Following public engagement with more than 3,000 Winnipeggers in 2013, the Strategies will assist in the prioritization of walking and cycling infrastructure projects city-wide based on further in-depth engagement with neighbourhood and local stakeholders on a per project basis.
