2019-2023 Corydon/Stafford/Taylor Pavement Renewals Project

The 2019-2023 Corydon/Stafford/Taylor Pavement Renewals Project is supported by the Government of Canada's New Building Canada Fund and the Province of Manitoba. It will see major reconstruction work, including new roadway and sidewalk infrastructure, on Stafford Street, Corydon Avenue and Taylor Avenue – ultimately leading to greatly improved road surface conditions.


Background

The 2019-2023 Corydon/Stafford/Taylor Pavement Renewals Project is supported by the Government of Canada's New Building Canada Fund and the Province of Manitoba. It will see major reconstruction work, including new roadway and sidewalk infrastructure, on Stafford Street, Corydon Avenue and Taylor Avenue – ultimately leading to greatly improved road surface conditions.

The project will also include improvements to pedestrian and motorist safety, as well as some existing cycling infrastructure.

The following areas are included in this project:

  • Stafford Street from Corydon Avenue to Pembina Highway
  • Corydon Avenue from Stafford Street to Cambridge Street
  • Eastbound Corydon Avenue from Cambridge Street to Waterloo Street
  • Taylor Avenue from Wilton Street to Pembina Highway

The project design relies on geometric improvements and upgrades to meet pedestrian accessibility standards, increase traffic safety and improve efficiency. The project team is working closely with other City departments to mitigate impacts on parking, Transit service, and both business and residential access through construction; there will be minimal impacts to these amenities upon project completion.

Because of the project's limited scope, it will not include any public engagement activities. Instead, the City will reach out to and meet with businesses, residents, and property owners in each project area to provide information on localized permanent impacts, and gather information about parking and loading needs, and accessibility concerns, throughout construction.

Up-to-date information about staging, access, and other construction-related topics will be posted on this webpage throughout the project.

If you own or lease property in the area and believe you may be impacted by this project, please feel free to reach out to us at CST@winnipeg.ca

What is the 2019-2023 Stafford/Corydon/Taylor Pavement Renewals Project?

The 2019-2023 Corydon/Stafford/Taylor Pavement Renewals Project is supported by the Government of Canada's New Building Canada Fund and the Province of Manitoba. It will see major reconstruction work, including new roadway and sidewalk infrastructure, on Corydon Avenue, Stafford Street and Taylor Avenue – ultimately leading to greatly improved road surface conditions.

The project will also include improvements to pedestrian and motorist safety, as well as some existing cycling infrastructure. The project will include a total reconstruction of Stafford Street (Pembina Highway to Corydon Avenue), Corydon Avenue (Stafford Street to Waterloo Street) and Taylor Avenue (Wilton Street to Pembina Highway). The work is anticipated to be completed over four years as follows:

2020

  • Corydon Avenue – Stafford Street to Rockwood Street
  • Eastbound Corydon Avenue– Waterloo Street to Oxford Street

2021

  • Corydon Avenue – Rockwood Street to Oxford Street
  • Taylor Avenue– Wilton Street to Harrow Street

2022-2023

  • Stafford Street – Corydon Avenue to Pembina Highway (project sequencing to be determined)
  • Taylor Avenue – Harrow Street to Pembina Highway (project sequencing to be determined)
What type of work will be happening on these streets?

The roadways will be completely reconstructed with new concrete pavement, new curbs, and new sidewalks (in most locations). The new roads will be smooth and drain well. All streetlights will be replaced.

What is happening on Taylor Avenue now and how do the two projects work together?

The City is currently working on a separate Water and Waste project on Taylor. We are installing large combined sewer relief sewers and will, over the next few years, continue the installation in the neighborhoods south of Grant Avenue and also along some sections of Stafford Street. A section of watermain will also be renewed along Taylor Avenue.

The Corydon/Stafford/Taylor project will follow this underground work by rebuilding the sections of Stafford Street and Taylor Avenue listed in this pavement renewal program.

What safety improvements will be included in the project?

Dedicated left turn lanes, addition of a new median, signal improvements, sightline improvements, and crosswalk realignments are all planned to improve safety at the intersection of Corydon Avenue and Cambridge Street.

The project will also include turning lanes on Taylor Avenue at Stafford Street to improve both traffic safety and flow.

How will pedestrian safety in particular be considered?

Pedestrian facilities will be designed according to the latest accessibility standards and will also focus on serving individuals with visual impairments. New design features include yellow detectable warning tiles, paving bands to assist in visually delineating the intended walking path, realigned pedestrian crossings, and improved sightlines to assist drivers in navigating through pedestrian crossings.

A new sidewalk will be constructed on the south boulevard of Taylor Avenue between Harrow Street and Pembina Highway; the sidewalk on the north side of Taylor Avenue between Stafford Street and Pembina Highway will be widened to improve accessibility.

Will there be any improvements to existing cycling facilities?

A protected bicycle intersection will be constructed at Taylor Ave and Harrow St. This will allow for a convenient interchange for cyclists to and from Taylor Ave and Harrow St and transition between various on and off-street bike infrastructure.

How will the City inform major stakeholders?

We will meet individually with major stakeholders through the planning and design phase of the project to provide information on location-specific impacts, and to determine specific needs during staging.

Who are the major stakeholders?

Major stakeholders include local businesses, schools, churches, and community centers directly affected by the outcomes of this project.

How will construction affect local business and residents?

We are working hard to minimize impacts to businesses and residences during construction. We are maintaining sidewalks, pedestrian access, and as access to parking lots and alleys, as much as possible; however, two primary closures are scheduled:

  • The sidewalk on the north side of Corydon Street will be not be accessible throughout that area's construction.
  • All sidewalks will be closed for short periods of time while they are being paved.

Specific concerns can be voiced during the targeted meetings and/or through channels outlined in the notification letters sent out prior to construction.

How will construction affect traffic and parking?

While we are working hard to minimize impacts, lanes will be closed, turning restrictions implemented, and on-street parking removed throughout the various project areas to accommodate construction activities. Access through major intersections will be maintained; however, some side street approaches will also be closed to traffic.

How can individual residents and businesses raise questions or concerns regarding the project?

We encourage concerned residents and businesses to reach out to us directly via CST@winnipeg.ca.

How will this affect trees?

We are working closely with our Urban Forestry branch to preserve and protect trees as much as possible. In some cases, the new roadway design requires us to remove trees to implement safety features. In these instances, public safety will take precedence over tree preservation. We will communicate directly with property owners adjacent and near to the affected trees.

How will construction affect Transit services?

Transit services will be maintained throughout construction using various means such as stop relocations, temporary stop closures and/or transit detours.
