Why This Project Was Started
An access management study was completed in 2018 on PTH 12 and PTH 52 in the vicinity of Steinbach. As a result of that study a functional design study was initiated through the community of Mitchell to improve safety and traffic operations in the growing community.
The purpose of the functional design study is to recommend improvements to the highway network, including the integration of active transportation for pedestrians and cyclist corridors in Mitchell. The study has also considered intersection improvements to support future signal lights along the PTH 52 corridor.
The goal is to improve the safety of active transportation and vehicular traffic by strategically placing active transportation corridors and improved intersections, while also balancing the interests of stakeholders in the area.
September 2020 Public Engagement: What We Heard Report
September 2020 Public Engagement
We asked the public for feedback on a variety of alternatives for Ash Street, the Western Access and the active transportation corridors. Three options that include varying combinations of these alternatives were also presented.
View the public engagement presentation material below. The presentation discussed the operational characteristics of the alternatives provided for the intersection improvements and the placement of the active transportation corridors.
The diagrams below are provided for additional background information.

Option 2: Ash Street median opened with western Access located at Rosedale Road (pdf)
Option 3: Ash Street median opened with western Access located at Reichenbach Road (pdf)
