City of Winkler: Northland Parkway Traffic Impact Study

The City of Winkler (Winkler) is located 120 km southwest of the City of Winnipeg. Winkler has experienced rapid growth over the last several years, giving rise to the need for a more organized large-scale development plan. Winkler intends to develop over 1100 acres of land deemed the "Northland Parkway" development. It is expected that this area will be the major growth centre for Winkler over the next many years. Winkler, along with Manitoba Infrastructure and Transportation (MIT), engaged Dillon Consulting Limited (Dillon) to undertake a traffic impact study and functional design plan to identify the development impact on the existing provincial and municipal road network, recommend improvements to the existing and proposed roadways and intersections, as well as anticipate costs and recommend cost sharing strategies. The report is intended as a blueprint for the long-term development of the Northland Parkway area, including use in negotiations with developers and government agencies for development charges.
