Section of Redwood Avenue to close starting Monday

Winnipeggers invited to provide feedback in final phase of the Eastern Corridor Study

Released: 9:50 a.m.

Winnipeg, MB – The City of Winnipeg is inviting residents to learn more and provide feedback about the approved Eastern Rapid Transit Corridor route through Point Douglas and Elmwood neighbourhoods and share their thoughts on the conceptual design, including the Louise Bridge replacement.

In April 2021, Council approved the Winnipeg Transit Master Plan (WTMP), and along with it the Eastern Rapid Transit Corridor route, which includes the location of the corridor’s river crossing as part of a replacement for the Louise Bridge.

The WTMP outlined the staging for the construction of the Rapid Transit corridors, from Downtown moving outward. The focus of this phase of engagement is the segment of the Eastern Rapid Transit Corridor running through Point Douglas and Elmwood.

To see details of the draft concept, residents can view an online presentation or attend an outdoor open-house – refreshments and snacks will be provided at the family-friendly event:

Date: Monday, June 27, 2022*
Time: 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Location: Outdoors at Sutherland Avenue & Gomez Street
Format: Drop-in (come and go)

*In case of heavy rain, the event will be held Tuesday, June, 28, 2022 

The final version of the plan will be used to guide the next steps in creating more detailed designs for the Louise Bridge and surrounding area. There is no timeline for construction of the Eastern Rapid Transit Corridor or Louise Bridge replacement, both of which are subject to Council approval and funding.

City awards renovation grants to 20 community centres

Winnipeg, MB – Twenty City-owned community centres will receive funding for renovations through the City of Winnipeg’s Community Centre Renovation Grant Program (CCRGP).

“Community centres are essential for building safe and healthy communities where residents can find a space for recreation, learning, play, or shelter,” said Sherri Rollins, Chairperson of the Standing Policy Committee on Protection, Community Services and Parks. “Many dedicated people, including volunteers, spend countless hours working to ensure these hearts of our neighbourhoods keep beating. I’m pleased we can support their efforts through this funding.”

The community centres receiving grants are:

  • Bord Aire
  • Burton Cummings
  • Central
  • Chalmers

  • Norquay
  • Northwood

The CCRGP received 28 applications, requesting a total of $1,969,374.05 during the Spring 2022 Intake period. Twenty applications totaling $1,382,955.33 were approved.

The program ensures that City-owned, board-run community centres can access much-needed assistance required to complete facility repairs, upgrades, retrofits, safety improvements, and renovation projects.

The program has two intake periods each year: a spring intake in March and a fall intake in October. Since the program’s inception in 2012, the City has invested over $12.6 million towards community centre renovations across Winnipeg.
