SW Rapid Transitway (Stage 2) Public Information Session
July 19, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Citizens are invited to attend a public information session, hosted by the City of Winnipeg, to view the plans for the Southwest Rapid Transitway (Stage 2). City staff will be on hand to provide information on design plans, project elements, and construction timelines.
Date: Tuesday, July 19, 2016
Time: 4-7 p.m.
Location: Canad Inns Fort Garry, 1824 Pembina Highway (Ambassador Room F)
Completion of the project will represent a significant step forward in building the transportation network outlined in the City’s Transportation Master Plan, and will help promote the increased densification of Winnipeg by facilitating the future development of several large-scale, infill, transit-oriented developments identified in Our Winnipeg – Complete Communities.
Construction of the Southwest Rapid Transitway (Stage 2) and Pembina Highway Underpass Project is expected to be completed in late 2019. Following a period of testing, training and commissioning, Transit operations on the new transitway are expected to commence in April, 2020.
The Southwest Rapid Transitway (Stage 2) and Pembina Highway Underpass Project is comprised of significant infrastructure components in the southwest quadrant of the city including: the completion of Stage 2 of the Southwest Transitway, the addition of active transportation infrastructure, the renewal and expansion of the Pembina Underpass, and connections to the University of Manitoba and Investors Group Field.
