Need for traffic calming
Bridge Lake Drive has been identified as a high-priority location for traffic calming measures through our Traffic Calming Program.
Traffic data was collected in April, 2019:
- The 85th percentile speed, which is the speed at which 85 percent of motorists travel at or below, is 56 km/h
- About 340 vehicles travel 55 hm/h or faster every day
- A third of these vehicles travel faster than 60 km/h
Traffic calming measures are being installed on Bridge Lake Drive to help slow speeds and create a safer space for all road users.
We are now collecting community input to help us create the preferred solution for the area.
Tell us what you think by taking an online survey before July 19, 2023.
Please contact City-Engage@winnipeg.ca or call 204-986-4243 by July 10 with inquiries or if you require alternate formats or interpretation to participate.
We are engaging the community in two phases.
In Summer 2023 we are surveying the community to gain an understanding of how people who use the road feel about its current state as well as their openness to traffic calming measures. This is Phase 1 of engagement.
What we hear in this survey will help us develop potential solutions for the area, which we will bring back to the community in early 2024 for Phase 2 engagement.
Following Phase 2 we will present a final design for information and implementation as early as 2024.
