The City builds on the pedestrian and cycling network in conjunction with road renewal and other major projects. The City also dedicates funds annually to improve, upgrade and expand upon the pedestrian and cycling network. The City of Winnipeg’s Public Works Department recommends an annual list of projects in the Pedestrian and Cycling Action Plan.
Adoption of annual projects requires approval from the Standing Policy Committee on Infrastructure Renewal and Public Works before going to all Council for final approval in the Pedestrian and Cycling Program of the Capital Budget.
Improving and expanding the cycling network usually requires a reconfiguration of the existing streets to accommodate new or improved facilities with the objective of providing opportunity for all ages and abilities to feel safe and comfortable cycling. The process generally involves a study of the existing street use, including a parking analysis, traffic analysis of vehicles, pedestrians and bikes, utilities, lighting, trees, and public input.
The next stage is to develop design alternatives, which are presented to the public and stakeholders for feedback. The study created a design for a two-way protected bike lane on Garry Street. Construction for the Main Street crossing took place in 2016, and funding for construction of the Garry Street bike lane has been included as part of the 2017 budget.
Continuing the east/west pedestrian and cycling connection to the Exchange District and Downtown. This project will look at options to encourage walking and cycling for people of all ages and abilities through the creation of a neighbourhood greenway along Ruby Street and Banning Street to link the Wolseley and West Alexander neighbourhoods. Identifying a location for a new pedestrian and cycling bridge over the Seine River between Provencher Blvd.
The route will be part of the south-east network that will connect the Bishop Grandin Greenway through to St. Boniface. Through this project, a preliminary design for a new Bishop Grandin Walk Bike Bridge over Pembina Highway will be developed.
The City of Winnipeg is conducting a study and preliminary design for complete roadway and overpass improvements on these streets, while also taking an opportunity to create new and improve existing cycling and pedestrian facilities in the study area. A study is required to develop a preliminary design for the rehabilitation as well as improvements to the pedestrian and cycling network in the study area.
The City is rehabilitating Pembina Hwy travel lanes and sidewalks, and adding buffered bike lanes between Arbuthnot St (south of Grant Ave) and Osborne St. Portions of Corydon Ave and McMillan Ave are also included. Active Transportation plays an important part in the success of Rapid Transit. In September 2015, the City of Winnipeg initiated a public engagement process to receive input on the West Alexander Pedestrian and Cycling Corridor Study. A study was completed in 2016 and a design to improve riverbank stabilization was selected.

Hey there, time traveller! This article was published 3/12/2012 (1667 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current. Winnipeg’s Reh-Fit Centre has been named the best medical-fitness facility in the world this year. The centre at 1390 Taylor Ave., was chosen as the recipient of the 2012 Certified Facility of the Year by the Medical Fitness Association (MFA).
JOE BRYKSA / WINNIPEG FREE PRESS David Holt says his chest pains diminished quickly once he started exercising at the Reh-Fit Centre. There are currently only 44 medical fitness facilities in the world and the Reh-Fit Centre is the only one in Canada. In June, the Reh-Fit Centre announced the MFA had recognized it as Canada’s first and only certified medical-fitness facility.
It’s the best program to be in.
The centre works to develop fitness programs for clients but also works with people dealing with illness and their doctors to develop health and fitness plans to make patients less reliant on medical care and prescription drugs. Healthy Living Minister Jim Rondeau said facilities such as the Reh-Fit Centre are helpful for people dealing with illnesses, but can also lead to huge cost savings for Manitoba’s health-care system. The amount of money we can save on health-care costs by changing the behaviour of 10 per cent of the population is unbelievable. It’s the best program to be in. You don’t have to be afraid. The staff are friendly.
Construction is set to begin on Winnipeg’s eighth QuickCare clinic, this one in west Winnipeg. Premier Greg Selinger had a press conference at the site, located at 3250 Portage Ave., where construction is ongoing. When it opens in early 2016, it’s hoped the clinic – which will offer a variety of primary health-care options – will help to reduce wait times at the Grace Hospital. The clinics are staffed by registered nurses and nurse practitioners who diagnose and treat minor health issues.
There won’t be any shuffling of bones or guttural moaning on the streets of Winnipeg this October- or at least it won’t be coming from the zombie walk this year. The organizers of Winnipeg’s 2013 zombie walk cancelled the event on Wednesday, saying rising costs and safety concerns forced them to nix the event. The annual event typically attracts thousands of Winnipeggers who dress up like zombies and shuffle around the streets. Similar walks take place in cities across the world each October.
WINNIPEG – It’s the 5th most common form of cancer in this country and this Sunday, Bladder Cancer Canada is asking the public to lace up for the cause. It’s the fourth most common form of cancer in men, and the 12th most common in women. The most commmon symptom when identifying someone may have bladder cancer is blood in the urine, which occurs in more than 80% cases.
After chemotherapy, surgery and a recurrence,14 years later, Klimchuk is cancer free and explains why its so important to walk for those battling the disease. Unfortunately we have approximately 40% to 50% mortality,a recurrence within 5 years. The numbers are so terrible. We’re number 15 in the government for funding, and that’s why it’s so important to fund raise because we just don’t have a lot of money,â Klimchuk explained.
