WINNIPEG — Motorists will soon to able to accelerate a little faster on a stretch of Pembina Highway south of the Perimeter.
The Provincial Highway Traffic Board has given the city approval to increase the speed south of the La Salle River Bridge from 60 km/h to 70 km/h.
New signage will be installed and the speed will be changed in the near future.
Just north of that location, discussions remain to increase the speed on Pembina south of the Perimeter Highway to the La Salle River Bridge. The current speed is 60 km/h and then drops to 50 km/h while travelling through St. Norbert.
An online survey on the increase garnered more than 250 responses last April.
A report with the results of the study and community concerns will be considered by the Standing Policy Committee on Infrastructure Renewal and Public Works on February 5.
