2019-2022 Archibald Pavement Renewal Project

The 2019-2022 Archibald Pavement Renewal Project is supported by the Government of Canada New Building Canada Fund and the Province of Manitoba. It involves reconstruction and rehabilitation on Archibald Street from Plinguet Street to Cottonwood Road.

Background

The 2019-2022 Archibald Pavement Renewal Project is supported by the Government of Canada New Building Canada Fund and the Province of Manitoba. It involves reconstruction and rehabilitation on Archibald Street from Plinguet Street to Cottonwood Road.

The project will not have permanent implications for parking, loading, or routing; because of the project's limited scope it will not include any public engagement activities.

Instead, the City will be reaching out to and meeting with businesses, residents and property owners in the area to gather information about planned building modifications, accessibility and driveway approach modifications (if required). We will also be reaching out to transportation industry stakeholders to discuss rerouting and access needs.

Information gathered throughout this outreach will help us design and stage construction to have minimal impact on area stakeholders; it will also allow us to make accommodations where necessary.

The first phase of construction – Elizabeth Road to Cottonwood Road – will begin this coming construction season.

Frequently Asked Questions

Open all | Close all

What is the 2019-2022 Archibald Pavement Renewal Project?

The 2019-2022 Archibald Pavement renewal Project is part of the Accelerated Regional Street Renewal project under the Federal New Building Canada Fund.

The project will include a variety of roadwork from Plinguet Street to Doucet Street, St. Catherine Street to Elizabeth Road, and Elizabeth Road to Cottonwood Road including:

  • Modifying or removing unused approaches
  • Improving pedestrian corridors
  • Minor lane reconfiguration

The project will be completed in three phases.

Phase 1 (2020) –Roadway resurfacing from Elizabeth Road to Cottonwood Road.
Phase 2 (2021) – Roadway reconstruction from St. Catherine Street to Elizabeth Road (including the Archibald Street/Elizabeth Road intersection).
Phase 3 (2022) – Roadway resurfacing from Plinguet Street to Doucet Street.

When will construction begin?

We are currently developing staging and will begin work on one section of Archibald Street in the 2020 construction season.

Can I provide feedback on what I want to see happen on these streets?

We will not be doing any formal public engagement on this project, as it does not have any permanent implications for parking, loading, intersection geometries, or routing.

Instead, we will reach out to and meet with businesses, residents, and property owners in the area to gather information about parking and loading needs, and planned private construction or renovations; this information will help us stage construction so it has minimal impact on area stakeholders and will also allow us to make accommodations where necessary.

I live, run a business or own building on one of the streets on the list. How will this impact me?

We are working with area stakeholders to minimize negative impacts. We're taking stakeholder feedback into account as part of our staging plan, and will attempt to mitigate concerns around parking, loading and access.

If you believe you are a stakeholder in a Phase 1 (Elizabeth Road to Cottonwood Road) and we do not contact you by April 30, 2020, please reach out to us via 311.

How will this impact traffic in the area?

Measures will be taken to ensure traffic impacts are kept to a minimum. We are meeting with the trucking industry to anticipate and mitigate concerns, and will post construction and wayfinding signage throughout the project area as construction progresses.

What is road reconstruction vs. resurfacing?

Reconstruction is done when the pavement surface and structure has failed (not just the surface or pavement joints). It replaces the entire pavement structure and typically includes renewal of all sidewalks, private approaches and full boulevard restoration. This project includes road reconstruction on Archibald Street from St. Catherine Street to Elizabeth Road.

Resurfacing is done when pavement structure is in fair condition, with pavement repairs (joints and select slabs) completed prior to resurfacing. It includes less extensive concrete repairs and new asphalt surfacing. This project includes the road resurfacing on Archibald Street from Plinguet Street to Doucet Street and from Elizabeth Road to Cottonwood Road.

Why are you doing the Pavement Renewals Project?

Pavement Renewals are an essential part of road maintenance. We will not be changing anything major; we are, for the most part, just redoing what is already there.

How will construction affect Transit services?

Transit service is expected to be maintained during construction. Measures including temporary route detours and temporary bus stop relocations or closures may be required at various times during construction.

What is the budget for the project?

The Total Project budget is $15.75 million and is currently included in the City’s five-year capital budget forecast.

Will access be maintained to existing businesses along Archibald Street?

Access to businesses will be maintained as much as possible with short term, temporary adjustments as required. Approaches may be temporarily closed to facilitate construction. Any disruption to access will be discussed with the applicable business/resident, prior to the disruption.

What safety improvements are included in the project?

Select sidewalks will be replaced and a new sidewalk is proposed to be constructed on the east side of Archibald Street from Kavanagh Street to Plinguet Street. We will add detectable warning tiles at street crossings where possible to improve pedestrian safety and revise alignment to improve pedestrian visibility for vehicles.

Will road construction be affected by COVID-19?

While the City continues to evaluate its services and projects amid the COVID-19 pandemic, road construction is considered an essential service by the Province of Manitoba and at this time is expected to proceed as planned with the following considerations:

  • Our contractors are working with their industry and public health officials to determine safe work procedures for construction sites.
  • In-person outreach and consultations to help us understand the needs of property owners adjacent to regional road renewals and other non-Capital projects will now be done remotely via phone, regular mail, email or other online channels.
  • We are evaluating options for public engagement on larger capital projects and looking at how to continue to stay connected to Winnipeggers and their feedback and input. Updates on specific projects and their timeleines will be provided once information is available.

We are doing our best to reach stakeholders in a timely and efficient manner but also understand that normal is changing every day and people may no longer be reachable where, or how, we once expected.

If you are a stakeholder on an upcoming project and have new or temporary contact information, please reach out to PWDCommunications@winnipeg.ca.

I own a property or run a business in the area of an upcoming construction project, but am currently staying home. How will I get the information I need and provide input on this project?

Please reach out to us. Send an email to PWDCommunications@winnipeg.ca and we will have the project team contact you.
