Winnipeggers are being invited to shape the future Osborne to downtown active transportation bridge.
The city is investing to close the gap in the pedestrian and cycling network by connecting bike lanes on Assiniboine Avenue to future cycling routes in Osborne Village.
Feedback is being gathered online and in-person through a number of avenues.
The public can visit Winnipeg.ca to share their thoughts or attend a public workshop on January 25 from 6-8 p.m. at Augustine United Church, 444 River Avenue.
Two neighbourhood coffee shops are also offering postcards the public can fill out on the new Osborne to downtown walk-bike bridge. Little Sister Coffee Maker (470 River Avenue) and Fools and Horse (379 Broadway) can will have postcards to be submitted from January 8-19.
A public engagement report will go to city council in the summer/fall of 2018 for final review before constuction on the design begins.
