City looking at adding bike lane on Pembina

The City of Winnipeg will try to find a way to build bike lanes on a stretch of Pembina Highway that’s slated to be resurfaced this summer. St. Norbert Coun. Justin Swandel and several Winnipeg trail groups asked city council’s public works committee if bike lanes could be added to Pembina Highway between Crescent Drive and Plaza Drive. The cost of the lanes could be $650,000. That stretch of Pembina is considered a nuisance by commuter cyclists because there are no north-south side streets they can use to avoid motor-vehicle traffic.

Council’s public works committee voted to attempt to add bike lanes using cash already within the city’s budget and seek additional funds from outside sources, if necessary.
