April 18, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The April meeting of the ITE Manitoba Section will be held on Tuesday, April 18, 2017 starting at 12 noon at the Masonic Temple, 420 Corydon Avenue (at Confusion Corner).
The speaker this month will be Scott Suderman C.E.T., P. Eng.
Scott is a transportation engineering professional with over 10 years of experience in both the public sector and the consulting industry. He has a variety of experience in the planning and design of all types of transportation facilities. Within the City of Winnipeg Public Works Department, Scott currently leads the Transportation Facilities Branch.
Scott’s presentation will be on upgrading the existing bike lanes on the Fort Street / Garry Street couplet to protected bike lanes in consultation with stakeholders and the public.
Multiple options where developed and evaluated and a recommended option was identified. The City is now moving forward with implementation starting in 2017 for the permanent protected bike lanes in addition to renewing downtown infrastructure. This major project will be a milestone for mobility and infrastructure renewal in Winnipeg’s downtown. The project started with substantial public opposition that was overcome through an adaptive and significant public engagement process. The public engagement process as well as solutions to overcoming the technical challenges will be discussed in this presentation.
Please note that the price of the luncheon is $25.00 for members and friends and $15.00 for students. Registration and online payment MUST be completed at least one week in advance (by April 11) through the link here.
