Winnipeggers are invited to attend an information session on raising the speed limit on Pembina Highway south of the La Salle River Bridge. Your input, along with the speed limit review, will be considered in a recommendation to the City’s Standing Policy Committee on Infrastructure Renewal and Public Works.
Date: Thursday, November 30, 2017
Time: 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Location: St. Norbert Community Centre, 3450 Pembina Hwy
Format: Presentation at 6:15 p.m., followed by question and answer period.
If you are unable to attend the information session, you can complete an online survey to tell the City what you think. The survey will be open until December 7, 2017.
As background information, the segment of Pembina Highway which lies south of the La Salle River Bridge underwent a speed limit review in 2017. Winnipeg’s Public Service is recommending to increase the existing speed limit from a 60 km/h zone to a 70 km/h zone, subject to public consultation and approval by the City’s Standing Policy Committee on Infrastructure Renewal and Public Works (SPC-IRPW).
Before a decision is made, the City is gathering input from the public to determine the level of support for a speed limit change. If SPC-IRPW approves the Public Service’s recommendation, the City of Winnipeg would then apply to the Provincial Highway Traffic Board to change the speed limit.
The public will also have an opportunity to present to the Provincial Highway Traffic Board, as the Province of Manitoba is responsible for making the final decision.
