The City of Selkirk is partnering with the Province of Manitoba on the reconstruction of Main Street from Manitoba Avenue to Taylor Avenue this summer. The travelling lanes of Main Street in Selkirk are owned and maintained by the Province of Manitoba Highways Department and have been identified as being in poor condition. As such, the province will be investing into the reconstruction of these five blocks. The city, responsible for turning/parking lanes, will complete work on these areas at the same time, resulting in a significant cost savings.
In addition to the reconstruction of this section of Main, several safety and accessibility features will be added including a North/South bike lane, newly reconstructed sidewalks, and crosswalk enhancements.
Construction is set to begin in June (weather depending) and will allow for traffic throughout the duration of the project with periodic closures as needed. The project is set to be complete in October of this year.
Business/property owners and resident of this portion of Main Street, are invited to one of two meetings to learn more about the project, the timeline and to identify opportunities to reduce direct impacts while keeping the project on schedule and budget.
Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions, identify opportunities or concerns in both formats.
- The Zoom meeting is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, March 14th at 6:30pm. Slides will be presented to attendees and a question-and-answer period will take place afterwards.
- The in-person meeting is scheduled for Thursday, March 16th from 3-7pm at Memorial Hall. Attendees are welcome to come at any point to view poster boards and speak with the representatives that will be on-site.
Attendees are asked to register below or by contacting CitizenSupport for assistance during the business hours of 10am-4pm Monday-Friday at 204-785-4900 no later than Monday, March 13, 2023.
