Lagimodiere Twin Bridges Through-Pass & Connections

A major rehabilitation of the Lagimodiere Twin Bridges (Concordia and CPR Keewatin) will provide the city with an opportunity to carry through on one of the crossing improvements identified in the Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies[1].

A Through-Pass at the southern end of the Lagimodiere Twin Bridges would provide a connection between:

  • West of Lagimodiere
    • Molson/Panet Bike Lanes
    • CPR Keewatin Rail with Trail (planned)
    • Kimbeley/Concordia Bikeway (planned)
  • East of Lagimodiere
    • CPR Keewatin Rail with Trail (planned)
    • Peguis St Pathway
    • Ravelstone/Transcona Blvd Bike Lanes (planned)

A Through-Pass similar to the one begin built as part of the Fermor Ave Seine River Bridge should be included in the Lagimodiere Twin Bridges Rehabilitation Project.

Options for a through-pass at Lagimodiere include a new through-pass along the Ravelstone right of way, similar to what is being done with the Fermor Ave Seine River Bridge rehabilitation project, or a pathway under the CPR Keewatin Bridge similar to what was built along the Bishop Grandin Greenway beneath the CN Letellier rail line.

Summary of Recommendations

We are asking candidates to commit to the inclusion of a Walk/Bike Though-Pass in the Lagimodiere Twin Bridges Rehabilitation Project.
