University Cres. lane reconfiguration
The City of Winnipeg will configure a lane on University Cres. at Dysart Rd. in advance of University Cres. reconstruction anticipated in 2021-22.
Southbound through-traffic on University Cres. at Dysart Rd. will be restricted down to one lane. This lane configuration will be in effect until the intersection is reconstructed (2021-2022).
The intersection of University Cres. and Dysart Rd. recently had traffic signals installed, which were turned on October 1. Starting on October 3, contractors will begin the lane reconfiguration. This initial work will last approximately 3-4 days.
All information will be posted to the University of Manitoba’s service disruption page as soon as it is received.
The City’s Signals Traffic Engineer has determined, through scenario-testing, that this configuration will provide the safest and most efficient traffic flow at the intersection with the new traffic signals. The intent is also to mitigate the risk of rear-end collisions.
The intersection is being reconstructed as part of the City of Winnipeg’s University Cres. future construction from Chancellor Matheson Rd. to Pembina Hwy.
Questions or concerns regarding to this disruption can be directed to the City of Winnipeg via 311.
