PTH 101 - Functional Design Study

Provincial Trunk Highway (PTH) 101 is part of the ring road originally constructed in the 1950s and 1960s as a bypass route around the City of Winnipeg, and, together with PTH 100, is known as the Perimeter Highway – North (PTH 101) and South (PTH 100). Portage Avenue and Fermor Avenue form the boundaries between PTH 100 and PTH 101. The purpose of this project is to develop a study that will accommodate the future development of the North Perimeter Highway into a fully grade-separated freeway that can ultimately accommodate six lanes. This functional design study will take approximately two years to complete. A functional design study is an early phase of the design process in which the road right-of-way and roadway layout are established based on projected travel patterns and demand. Functional designs are informed by both technical studies and public input and feedback throughout the process.

Phase 2 Engagement
Manitoba Transportation and Infrastructure has been meeting with stakeholders and the local community since February 2023 to introduce the project and collect initial feedback. Following this consultation, the study team developed road alignment and interchange options. We are now asking the public to provide input on the proposed options for the PTH 101 Functional Design Study. Please review the public engagement presentation below, which includes drawings for the five separate segments along PTH 101 and a presentation explaining technical wording / rationale related to specific options. The ultimate goal for this study, including the engagement process, is to develop a plan that will accommodate the future development of the North Perimeter Highway into a fully access-controlled, grade-separated six-lane freeway.

Complete the online survey by January 24, 2024.

Road alignment and interchange options have been developed and we want to hear from you.
