The city is planning to add 35 new routes this year to its active transportation (AT) network and wants the public’s input.
Five drop-in sessions will be held next week to solicit input and ideas on where new cycling, walking, in-line skating, and cross-country skiing routes should be placed.
The expansion is part of Winnipeg’s Active Transportation Infrastructure Stimulus Program, a $20.4 million project funded equally by the city, provincial and federal governments.
When the program is completed by the end of this year, 372 kilometres of active transportation routes will be accessible by Winnipeggers.
For a list of drop-in locations, see the city’s Active Transportation blog.
