West Alexander Ped/Bike Corridor Engagement Events

West Alexander Bike/Ped Corridor Engagement Events

In September 2015, the City of Winnipeg initiated a public engagement process to receive input on the West Alexander Pedestrian and Cycling Corridor. Feedback received during this process has been incorporated into the design options for an east-west pedestrian and cycling connection through the West Alexander neighbourhood.

Visit one of two pop-up engagement events (or online) to view the options that have been designed for a safe and convenient cycling connection between McPhillips Street and Sherbrook Street.

To view proposed design options, provide feedback online:

Important Considerations

The West Alexander Pedestrian/Bicycle Corridor project will need to provide comfortable and convenient access to a number of destinations while overcoming a number of current barriers that exist for people trying to bike to destinations in the neighborhood or to connect to nearby roads as they pass through the neighbourhood on their way to destinations outside of the study area.

Important Connections

  • Bannatyne/McDermot
  • Cumberland/Wellington
  • Sherbrook/Maryland
  • Arlington
  • Alexander/Pacific
  • Empress
  • Northwest Hydro Corridor

Existing Barriers

  • Sherbrook – North of Notre Dame
  • Intersection of Notre Dame @ Sherbrook/Maryland
  • Notre Dame
  • McPhillips
  • CPR Yards & Mainline

Key Destinations

  • Health Sciences Centre
  • Downtown
  • Red River College
  • University of Winnipeg
  • James Industrial Park
  • Polo Park
  • Red River College

Bike Winnipeg has generated the map shown below to help illustrate important connections, barriers and destinations that the redesign of McDermot between Sherbrook and McPhillips will need to deal with.
