Free Press: City hopes university students can solve dock problems
January 7, 2016 —
As the Winnipeg Free Press reports:
City hall is hoping a class of senior engineering students can solve one of its problems.
The fourth year civil engineering class at the University of Manitoba is being asked to design an accessible public dock that can be installed along the Assiniboine River — a problem that’s stymied city officials for several years.
The student-designed dock would replace a dock that was installed at Gerald James Lynch Park — on the south side of the river at the foot of the Osborne Bridge — in 2004 but has been abandoned for the last five years because it’s too unwieldy to operate.
