Interactive map helps Winnipeggers navigate road construction season
The season of roadwork is well underway in Winnipeg but a new online tool should make it easier to navigate the network of construction projects.
The city has launched an interactive online map that shows all of the projects scheduled for this year and their status. It includes all street work as well as pedestrian and cycling projects, and traffic signal upgrades.
All information is available by map or list format.
"With such a significant investment in the city's infrastructure this year, Winnipeggers can expect a busy and productive construction season," said Coun. Marty Morantz, chair of the Standing Policy Committee on Infrastructure Renewal and Public Works.
"This online map is a great tool to help citizens see the work that this investment is going towards, and help plan their travel routes."
By clicking on a highlighted project on the map or list, a box will appear with project details such as:
- Type of infrastructure (street, alley, sidewalk, traffic signal, bridge project, pedestrian and cycling path).
- Type of construction work (reconstruction, rehabilitation, mill and fill, thin bituminous overlay).
- Estimated start date.
- Estimated end date.
- Percentage completed.
- Consultant and contractor information.
More information about road construction in the city is available on the city's website.
