In 2020, the City of Winnipeg announced it would be reconstructing Johnson Ave. Reimagine Elmwood took that as a chance to improve the sidewalk width on Johnson Ave, which were often much too narrow to accommodate a person with a stroller or in a wheelchair, forcing them onto the roadway. We brought our concerns to the City at the design stage, and were successful in getting the roadway reduced from 4 lanes to 3 lanes in order to provide wider sidewalks on both sides. Although we started this way back in 2020, construction is only finishing up this fall, so it’s exciting to finally see the results of our efforts.
