If you feel like channelling your inner city planner, drop by the Holiday Inn South next week.
The city is hosting a public open house there on Wednesday, Sept. 19 and on Saturday, Sept. 22 to review and provide feedback on the alignment options for the Southwest Transitway Stage 2, the last piece of Winnipeg’s first bus corridor.
The Wednesday session will take place from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. and the Saturday session will take place 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 1330 Pembina Highway.
Residents are invited to view the potential alignment displays, give their opinions and speak with the project team.
The second leg of the busway will run between Jubilee Avenue near Pembina Highway to the University of Manitoba campus, likely running through the former Southwood Golf Course lands before it winds up near Investors Group Field, the future home of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
Where precisely it goes between Jubilee and the U of M has been the subject of debate since last summer, when a draft of the city's Transportation Master Plan revealed two possible alignments: straight down Pembina Highway or on an L-shaped dogleg through three Fort Garry residential neighbourhoods.
