Winnipeg, MB – Do you walk or bike in the Wolseley and West End neighbourhoods? The City wants to hear from you to help refine plans for a Walk Bike project connecting the Wolseley and West Alexander neighbourhoods.
Public feedback is now needed on a range of treatments to slow down traffic, improve safety for walking, biking and driving, and make travel more comfortable to people of all ages and abilities on Ruby Street and Banning Street. The ultimate result will be an important north-south connection between Palmerston Avenue and Notre Dame Avenue and beyond.
Public input is a key component of all Walk Bike projects. Visit the website to provide feedback through an online survey: www.winnipeg.ca/walkbikeprojects
Engage at a street event
Come meet the project team, review proposed treatments and provide your feedback (drop-by format, come and go).
Date: Friday, September 15, 2017
Time: 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Event includes street art by local artists and students. At 5 p.m. there will be a community BBQ. Join kids from the Flaming Cheetahs Bike Club and instructors from the BEST Cycling Program for bike education, skills training, and an obstacle course. Location: Greenway School, 390 Burnell St.
