ITE Manitoba Luncheon
September 21, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
The speaker this month will be Steven Florko, EIT at Stantec Consulting Ltd. Steven has worked in transportation for four years. During that time he has completed more than two dozen transportation studies on new developments in Winnipeg, Brandon, and other communities in Manitoba. His involvement with the CPR Yards Crossing Functional Design Study included forecasting future traffic flows and conducting traffic analyses. His interests in transportation focus on relationships between transportation and land use, and the role of transportation in making communities that are good places to live. Steven’s presentation will be on the transportation planning and traffic engineering elements of the CPR Yards Crossing Functional Design Study. With the Arlington Street Bridge nearing the end of its useable life, this study was undertaken to determine the need for mobility across the CPR yards both now and into the future, and how that need can best be met. Stakeholders were consulted, travel demand was estimated, alternatives were developed and evaluated, and solutions were proposed. The proposed solutions are currently being carried forward and refined in the Preliminary Design Study.
