On May 28 of last year, I was pleased to announce provincial funding for a multi-use path in Seignieurie Park, known predominantly in the community as the Seig pathway.

Over the past year, many of you have been asking about this project, eagerly awaiting its start. This summer, I am happy to say that the ground has officially been broken, and construction has commenced on this highly anticipated addition to the Island Lakes community.

Wed., July 28, was the day of our official ground-breaking ceremony, and I was joined by representatives from the Island Lakes Residents’ Group (ILRG), and St. Boniface city councillor Matt Allard. Thank you to ILRG for spearheading this project, and the City of Winnipeg for its partnership.

They included (from left): Wayne and Helen Lymburner; ILRG president Lindsey Wilson; Lagimodière MLA Andrew Smith; Chantale Thurston; Valerie Zurrin; and Coun. Matt Allard (St. Boniface).

The SEIG Pathway will be used by both pedestrians and cyclists alike, and will run through Seignieurie Park in Island Lakes to the controlled intersection at Lagimodière Boulevard and Sage Creek Boulevard. The pathway will consist of a permanently paved section between the Sage Creek intersection, running up the Lagimodière berm, and will link to a smaller existing pathway in Seigneurie Park.

This walkway will further connect our community, and provide an added level of safety for individuals, and families, when traveling between Island Lakes and Sage Creek.
