New Traffic Lights on Pembina Highway

I’ve received many inquiries regarding the installation of new traffic lights on Pembina Highway, just south of Killarney/Kirkbridge.

The request to install this controlled intersection between the two shopping malls on Pembina was made in June, 2014 by the applicant, MMM Group Limited.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • The Winnipeg Public Service states that these new traffic lights will be timed to coordinate with the lights at Killarney/Kirkbridge so as not to impede the flow of traffic.
  • See Item G below re the PEDESTRIAN CORRIDOR, which is located further south of the new controlled intersection:
    • That the Winnipeg Public Service review the operations for possible adjustment or removal of the pedestrian corridor due to redundancy (located south of 2870 Pembina Highway)”.
    • No decision has been made on whether to leave or remove this corridor.  The Winnipeg Public Service will assess this issue over the next 6 months.
    • YOUR FEEDBACK is welcome and will be considered when determining if the controlled pedestrian corridor stays or is removed.  Please contact me if you wish to provide input on this issue.

June 3, 2014 DECISION (See Item #153 on Pages 6-8 in the Disposition HERE)

  • These traffic signals are being installed subsequent to the Standing Policy Committee on Infrastructure Renewal and Public Works (SPCIRPW) approving the access for the commercial development located on 2848-2870 Pembina Highway on June 3, 2014 (Report 4).
  • The Public Service recommended to SPCIRPW that the approach on Pembina Highway should be approved, but it should not be signalized.  However, SPCIRPW directed the Public Service to do the following:

 “The Standing Policy Committee on Infrastructure Renewal and Public Works concurred in the recommendation of the Winnipeg Public Service, as amended:

1. That the Private Access By-law No. 49/2008 be varied, to authorize the construction of a 15.6 metre wide private approach on the west side of Baylor Avenue, opposite the north leg of Magdalene Bay, as shown on Drawing No. A-14025-1.        

2. That the Private Access By-law No. 49/2008 be varied, to authorize the construction of a signalized 19.7 metre wide private approach on the east side of Pembina Highway, 174.6 metres south of  Killarney Avenue as shown on Drawing No. A-14025-2, subject to the following conditions:

A. That the applicant shall, at no expense to the City, construct a 52.4 metre southbound left turn storage lane extension, as illustrated on Drawing No. A-14025-2.

B. That the applicant shall, at no expense to the City, modify the existing northbound left turn storage lane within the median of Pembina Highway, as illustrated on Drawing No. A-14025-2.

C. The applicant shall, at no expense to the City, remove the existing median opening within Pembina Highway, and restore with sod and barrier curb, as illustrated on Drawing No. A-14025-2.

D. The applicant shall, at no expense to the City, and no expense to the property owner of 2855 Pembina Highway, construct the proposed private approach and interior roadway modifications to the property located at 2855 Pembina Highway, as illustrated on Drawing No. A-14025-2.

E. That the applicant submits written confirmation to the Public Works Department from the property owner of 2855 Pembina Highway, located on the west side of Pembina Highway, that they are in concurrence with the relocation of the existing private approach which serves their property, as illustrated on Drawing A-14025-2. If the property owner of 2855 Pembina Highway is not in concurrence with the relocation of the private approach and related interior roadwork, this Department strongly recommends that the Committee not approve the proposed approach and storage for 2848-2870 Pembina Highway.

F. That the applicant shall, pay to the City, in cash, on demand the costs of traffic control signals and all related works including, but not necessarily limited to pedestrian and vehicular actuation and interconnection to adjacent traffic control signals and audible pedestrian signals, pedestrian countdown signals (if required) at the proposed private access, when and as determined by and to the satisfaction of the Director of Public Works.

G. That the Winnipeg Public Service review the operations for possible adjustment or removal of the pedestrian corridor due to redundancy (located south of 2870 Pembina Highway). “
