Public invited to Provide Input on Route 90 Improvements

March 08, 2018

The City is inviting the public to share their input to help develop a preferred design for the widening of Route 90 between Taylor Avenue and Ness Avenue that will build on the recommendations of the 2012 Route 90 Transportation Planning Study (TPS). The route needs to be upgraded to address current and future traffic volumes, to accommodate new and future redevelopment, and to meet the needs of pedestrians, cyclists, and transit users.

Since the completion of the 2012 TPS, a number of developments have occurred that need to be considered before the project can move into the detailed design phase, including:

  • Updated traffic information and forecasts;
  • The Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies approved by City Council in 2015;
  • New accessibility requirements for pedestrian ramps;
  • Updates and future planning for Winnipeg Transit;
  • Updates to the surrounding transportation network;
  • New residential, business, and industrial development within the project area;
  • Changing conditions of roadways, bridges, and water mains;
  • New information on the Kapyong lands redevelopment; and
  • Updates to the St. James Bridges and interchanges at Portage Avenue and Academy Road in light of bridge condition and to improve access, safety and visibility.

The online survey is the first of several upcoming opportunities that the public will have
to provide input to the project team. The survey is available on the project website from
March 9 to April 6, 2018.
