Public Works

Walk Bike Projects

Southeast Corridor

Connecting the Bishop Grandin Greenway to St. Boniface

Study and Design

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.

Engage

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!

The project team has been meeting with community members and schools to gather information and knowledge about the area. Visit the "Timeline" tab to learn about how the project will continue.

An online survey and mapping tool were available from January 31 to February 20. The project team is currently reviewing all of the feedback received and a public engagement summary report will be posted on this page in the coming months.

We will come back with options of what the corridor may look like in March 2017.

Background

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Open all | Close all

Are you putting in bike lanes?
We are studying all potential options that will allow people of all ages and abilities to walk or bike from Provencher Boulevard to the Bishop Grandin Greenway.
What is being done around Fermor Avenue?
Another study is currently being conducted to develop a preliminary design for rehabilitation and improvements to the walking and biking network in the area. For more details please visit the Fermor Avenue Bridge over Seine River Rehabilitation and Roadworks project website.
When will this be constructed?
The section of Rue Des Meurons between Vivian Avenue and Regal Avenue is anticipated to be renewed in 2017. Currently no funding has been identified for the remaining sections.
How will this impact parking?
Land-use and parking varies along the study route. Parking implications will be studied and presented to the public as the project progresses.
Why aren’t you studying St. Anne's Road as a corridor?
On May 3, 2016 the Standing Policy Committee on Infrastructure Renewal and Public Works recommended to include the parameters set out in this study. A key direction of the Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies is to develop local bicycle networks for each neighbourhood that connects to the spine network and downtown. This would serve as south east cycling and walking corridor for Winnipeg.
What are the City of Winnipeg Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies?
On July 15, 2015, City Council adopted the Winnipeg Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies (the 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.
