On October 18th, ITE Manitoba hosted its first in-person luncheon since 2020, at the Winnipeg Winter Club. This luncheon featured two presentations:
Presentation 1: 2022 Student Paper Competition Winner
Navoda Rillagodage outlined the results of a research study proposing a methodical approach to model desired speed distributions under different road-weather and traffic conditions. The study attempts to identify road-weather conditions with potentially higher safety risks in rural divided highways located in extremely cold regions. This research received first prize in the 2022 Kean Lew Memorial Student Paper Competition.
Presentation 2: Eveline Street – From Vision to Concrete
Duane Nicol presented on Selkirk’s $7.2 million Eveline Street reconstruction project, which is the largest and most complex transportation renewal project in the city’s modern history. From a right-of-way first constructed in the eighteen hundreds, this new street will become a representative embodiment of Selkirk’s Climate Change Adaptation, Downtown Renewal, and Active Transportation strategies and its Street Tree policy.

ITE Manitoba hosted a bike tour in September to highlight and discuss some of the great bicycle infrastructure Winnipeg has to offer!
The bike tour commenced from the Forks, through the Wolseley to Downtown Walk Bike Project area, two enhanced summer bike routes, Harrow on-street bike lanes, and a 30km/h & traffic calmed neighbourhood greenway on Warsaw before returning to The Forks. Afterward, tour participants stayed at the Forks to enjoy a beverage.
The tour was hosted by Chris Baker and Erik Dickson of the City of Winnipeg.
