Pembina Highway Rehabilitation and Buffered Bike Lane Project

This project is a component of the overall Pembina Highway resurfacing and buffered bike lane project. The City of Winnipeg is rehabilitating Pembina Highway and adding buffered bike lanes between Arbuthnot Street (just south of Grant Avenue) to and including a portion of, Corydon Avenue at Osborne Street.
In 2013/2014, this process was completed between University Crescent and Markham Road and between Plaza Drive and Chevrier Boulevard. A future project will complete the connection between Grant Avenue and Chevrier Boulevard. This is currently planned to be completed as part of the proposed BRT extension project, which will include a new underpass of the CN rail line.

Frequently Asked Questions
The City attempts to mitigate construction impacts as much as possible. To expedite construction activities:
- When southbound construction is taking place, only one southbound lane of traffic will be closed.
- When northbound construction is taking place, only one northbound lane of traffic will be closed.
- Fast curing concrete (24hr or 72hr) will be used where a quick cure time will expedite activities and reduce impact to the public.
Access to businesses will be maintained as much as possible throughout the project. Approaches may be closed for short durations (less than 1 week) to facilitate construction. Parking will be restricted on the side of Pembina under construction.
As a general rule, on-street parking is being maintained where businesses fronting Pembina Highway do not have surface lots. Within the limits of the project there will be a loss of 26 parking spaces out of a total of 61 spaces. All the areas where parking is being removed were found to have an average utilization of less than 10%.
The City is committed to developing a pedestrian and cycling network that is safe and accessible for people of all ages and abilities. This project will lead to a smoother ride for motorists as well as increased safety for cyclists with the addition of a buffered bike lane and new, improved sidewalks for pedestrians.
$11.7 million is budgeted in 2016 for 2016/2017 design and construction.
Construction of the northbound lanes on Pembina Highway between Grant Avenue and Jessie Avenue is underway and is expected to be completed later this fall. Due to the timeline for land acquisition for the project, the northbound construction from Jessie Avenue to Osborne Street is expected to be completed in 2019.
