Speeds Being Reduced For Seasonal Bike Routes This Week


Wednesday, May 3, 2023 - It is that time of year when the City of Winnipeg will reduce speed on 15 residential streets that are becoming bike lanes.


These routes were part of a slate of 15 formerly referred to as the Enhanced Summer Bike Route program. In early 2023 Council approved five as designated seasonal routes until such a time as permanent cycling infrastructure can be studied.


Speed limit reduction will be placed on select over the next week on the first five streets;

  • Lyndale Drive – Cromwell Street to Gauvin Street (30 km/h)

  • Wellington Crescent – Academy Road to Academy Road/Maryland Street (30 km/h)

  • Wolseley Avenue between Raglan Road and Maryland Street (30 km/h)

  • Churchill Drive between Hay Street and Jubilee Avenue (30 km/h)

  • Kilkenny Drive between Burgess Avenue and Kings Drive / Kings Drive between Kilkenny Drive and Patricia Avenue (40 km/h)

The speed reduction will remain in place 24 hours a day from the time signs are installed through late October 2023.


Turn requirements at select intersections throughout each route as well as a one-block travel restriction on Wolseley Avenue only will be added following the City’s spring clean-up operations and will be in place weekends in May, June, September and October, and 24/7 through July and August.


Progress on this second phase of implementation and more information will be communicated at: winnipeg.ca/seasonalbikeroutes.


The remaining 10 routes were approved to transition to full-time reduced-speed neighbourhood greenways throughout the 2023 season. This implementation will take place over the next four months with updates posted at: winnipeg.ca/neighbourhoodgreenways.
