September 2013, Winnipeg and the Capital Region around Winnipeg are growing and much of that growth is occurring in the South of the Ward.
The result is increased traffic commuting to and from downtown, through our neighbourhoods, from the suburbs and increasingly from outside the City.This reality means that The City of Winnipeg must find a way to ensure this traffic moves around neighbourhoods and not through them.
· The underpass needs to ensure that additional traffic is funneled onto and off Taylor Avenue to and from Pembina Hwy. to ensure neighbourhoods are protected.
· The underpass design is based on improving traffic flow through the intersection but does not make the street a regional corridor.
There are new upcoming upgrades to various intersections along Taylor Ave including the intersection at Taylor and Pembina that will help facilitate traffic flowing to and from Pembina Hwy. via Taylor Avenue.
· That the existing community and businesses in the area are consulted and needs addressed.
