Keewatin Street Pathway
The City of Winnipeg is committed to building pedestrian and cycling infrastructure for people of all ages and abilities. Keewatin Street is listed as a high priority bicycle spine in the Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies.
An off-street pathway will be built along Keewatin Street from Burrows Avenue to Inkster Boulevard. This pathway will connect with existing off-street pathways on:
- Keewatin Street/Dr. Jose Rizal Way from Inkster Boulevard to Water Ridge Path, and
- Inkster Boulevard between Inksbrook Drive and Keewatin Street.
In addition a connection is being made to the bike lanes on Church Avenue.
Construction is scheduled to take place from August to November 2017.

Pathway construction was completed in October 2017. In 2018, new traffic signals will be installed at the intersection of Keewatin Street and Church Avenue.
Work commenced on August 14, 2017 for the construction an off-street pathway on the west side of Keewatin Street, from Burrows Avenue to Inkster Boulevard.

Frequently Asked Questions
Access to area businesses and residences will be maintained as much as possible throughout the project. Short term private approach closures may be required to facilitate construction and will be reviewed with the business/resident prior to the construction taking place.
The Keewatin Street pathway project is estimated to cost $1,000,000.
The next step will be to develop a design for the continuation of the pathway and determine a cost estimate. The remaining sections of pathway will be completed around 2020 at the same time as the road renewal, subject to Council approval.
On July 15, 2015, the City of Winnipeg Council adopted the Winnipeg Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies. This document stems from the 2011 Transportation Master Plan. The Strategies provide a long-range policy framework for active modes of transportation in Winnipeg for the next 20 years. Following public engagement in 2013 with more than 3,000 Winnipeggers, the Strategies will assist in the prioritization of walking and cycling infrastructure projects city-wide based on further in-depth engagement with neighbourhood and local stakeholders on a per project basis.
