THE City of Winnipeg wants the public’s help to select a new active transportation route between St. Boniface and downtown.

The path would create a link for pedestrians and cyclists to travel between the Esplanade Riel footbridge/ Provencher Bridge and the multi-use path on Archibald Street south of Nairn Avenue.

After the first round of public consultations, the city will seek feedback on three possible route options west of the Seine River and one that runs east of the river, including:

• West option A: Provencher Boulevard (as a standalone route through the area).

• West option B: A combination route that serves neighbourhoods both north and south of Provencher Boulevard with parallel routes on de la Cathedrale Avenue (south of Provencher Boulevard) and Notre Dame Street (north of Provencher Boulevard).

• West option C: A combination route that serves neighbourhoods both north and south of Provencher with parallel routes on de la Cathedrale (south of Provencher) and Dumoulin Street (north of Provencher).

• East recommended design: Nadeau Street / Notre Dame Street / La Fleche Street / La Verendrye Street to connect to Archibald Street.

Winnipeggers can share their thoughts on the proposed routes through a city survey or at a public event between now and June 14. For information on the options to provide feedback, visit
