Safety Improvements to North Bound Kenaston Blvd
All major collision intersections in Winnipeg are being studies as part of the Master Transportation Review. Due to the many crashes that seem to be occurring at the intersection of Kenaston and Bishop Grandin, I am requesting the traffic engineers study and apply some short term solution. I will post an update when the public works engineers report back, ideally by June 2021.
