Connecting the Bishop Grandin Greenway to St. Boniface
The goal of the Southeast Corridor Study and Design, along the area around Des Meurons Street and St. George Road, is to provide pedestrian and cycling infrastructure that allows people of all ages and abilities to walk or bike from the Bishop Grandin Greenway to the St. Boniface neighbourhood. The infrastructure will start and end at safe locations and connect people from their neighbourhoods to existing and future bicycle infrastructure.
The goal of the public engagement is to collect feedback throughout the design process to help determine the following:
- Type of infrastructure
- Location of infrastructure;
- Network connections;
- Intersection upgrades (type and location);
- Evaluation criteria (and weighting).
We want to hear from you!
Thank you to all who attended the open houses on April 4 and 5. Approximately 100 people attended the open houses and approximately 26 surveys were collected. An additional 147 surveys were also collected online.
Previous and ongoing activities
An online survey and mapping tool were available from January 31 to February 20. The project team has also been meeting with community members and schools to gather information and knowledge about the area.

In November 2011, City of Winnipeg Council approved the Transportation Master Plan (TMP). A key goal of the TMP is to expand the range of travel options that are available to residents, workers, and visitors, as well as to ensure that people are not dependent on one single mode of transportation. The TMP also calls for the development of the Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies.
In 2015, City Council approved the Winnipeg Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies, which provide a long-range policy framework for active modes of transportation for the next 20 years.
On May 18, 2016 City of Winnipeg Council approved the 2016 Pedestrian and Cycling Action Plan (Action Plan) that authorizes the Public Service to proceed with this project.
This project will develop local networks for neighbourhoods to connect to existing and planned cycling infrastructure and to downtown. The study will be the basis for the inclusion of cycling infrastructure in immediate and future street renewal programs.
