King Edward Rehabilitation Project
King Edward Street from Hyde Avenue to Logan Avenue is scheduled for road rehabilitation during the summer of 2021 as part of the City of Winnipeg's 2020-2021 Regional Street Pavement Renewals Program. The project will involve complete road resurfacing to address asphalt cracking and deterioration and concrete repairs to curbs and sidewalks. The project is supported by the Federal Governments New Building Canada Fund and the Government of Manitoba.
April 30, 2021 – Construction on King Edward Street from Hyde Avenue to Logan Avenue is scheduled to begin in late June. During construction, traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction; however, we will be working in small stages to minimize disruptions and the directly impacted area. Access to side streets and private properties will be maintained. Staging information will be available online in advance. Parking will be minimally impacted, as we will maintain parking on side streets (and parking on King Edward Street from Hyde Avenue to Logan Avenue is not permitted under normal conditions). Pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the duration of the project. View the construction notice for more information
March 2021 – The detailed design and tender preparation for roadwork construction is currently underway. Notification letters are currently being prepared for local area businesses and property owners.
King Edward Street is a major route in Winnipeg, carrying high vehicle volumes. It is a Winnipeg Transit route and full-time truck route. The project will involve complete road resurfacing to address asphalt cracking and deterioration.
As the project's scope is primarily to restore and repair existing infrastructure, there will not be any public engagement activities associated with this work. Instead, the City will reach out to meet with businesses and property owners along the project route to provide information on localized impacts, and to gather information about any parking, loading, and/or access concerns that may be affected during construction.
