Public invited to provide input on Wolseley to Downtown Walk Bike project

Released: 10:15 a.m.

Winnipeg, MB – The City of Winnipeg is gathering public input for the first phase of the Wolseley to Downtown Walk Bike Project. Winnipeggers are invited to participate online and in-person to help shape the design of pedestrian and cycling connections through the Wolseley neighbourhood.

The Wolseley to Downtown Corridor was identified as an important part of the network in the Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies and when completed, the corridor will provide connections to the Omand’s Creek pathway, the protected bicycle lane on Assiniboine Avenue and Sherbrook Street, the bike lane on Maryland Street, and the planned neighbourhood greenway on Ruby Street.

The study area runs east-west between Omand Park and Raglan Road to Osborne Street. As part of the study, the project team will seek input from various stakeholders in the project area in the coming months to help determine the specific alignment and other important considerations in the design process.
