Public invited to a workshop about the Bishop Grandin Walk Bike Bridge Over Pembina Highway project

Released: April 28, 2017 at 11:45 a.m.

Winnipeg, MB - The City of Winnipeg is gathering public input on the Bishop Grandin Walk Bike Bridge Over Pembina Highway project. Winnipeggers are invited to participate in a workshop on Thursday, May 11, 2017 to help shape the preliminary design.

The Bishop Grandin Walk Bike Bridge Over Pembina Highway will close a gap in one of Winnipeg's most prominent active transportation pathways by connecting the Bishop Grandin Greenway across the very busy and complex intersection at Pembina Highway and University Crescent at Bishop Grandin.

The new bridge will provide a safe and more convenient walking and biking connection to nearby neighbourhoods, Investors Group Field and the University of Manitoba. Another key component of this improved connection is to allow people from nearby neighborhoods to walk or bike to new Southwest Rapid Transitway Stage 2 stations where secure bike parking will be available.

The City intends to start construction as early as in March 2018 with the bridge anticipated to open in 2019, subject to Council approval and funding.
