So it’s construction time again in Winnipeg. Road work popping up everywhere.
For my main driving routes – the main areas are Pembina, Donald, and the Jubilee overpass.
Donald is an inconvenience, but hasn’t really slowed traffic too much.
Jubilee – well I don’t take it but it does provide a bit of a backlog heading south.
Pembina – well there are parts that seem to be moving pretty slow such as between the perimeter and bison drive. The flip side of that coin is once that is done, there will be a nice curb lane for biking in.
But I have to give the city kudos for the work on Pembina south of Chevrier. They have redone one section and are moving further south on that strip. Now doesn’t that seem to make more sense. Instead of tying up traffic on the whole section between Chevrier and Plaza, do small sections at a time. Much less aggrevating and people can see a tangible result.
Now if they would only redo the NB section between Grant and Confusion Corner and the SB section between Nassau and Confusion Corner, my bike commute would be nice and smooth!
