ITE Manitoba will be hosting an upcoming webinar on Thursday October 28th. This webinar features Susanne Dewey Povoledo & Morgan Glasgow of the City of Winnipeg who will present on Accessibility in Construction Zones, and Brian Patterson of Urban Systems & Chris Baker of the City of Winnipeg who will present on the Wolseley to Downtown Walk Bike Project. The webinar will be hosted by Steven Florko of MORR Transportation Consulting Ltd., and ITE Manitoba President.
This webinar will begin with 10-15 minutes of networking in breakout groups. It’s been a while since we’ve been able to see each other in person and this will give members a chance to catchup with one-another.
Presentation 1: Accessibility in Construction Zones
This two-part presentation will provide the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of accessibility in construction zones.
Susanne will provide an overview of why accessibility in construction matters from a legal, policy and Equity Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) perspective. She will also review the 7 principles of Universal Design and highlight key attributes that must be maintained during everchanging site conditions to ensure continuous and safe access for all through or around construction sites.
With work underway to update the City of Winnipeg’s Manual of Temporary Traffic Control for the 4th consecutive year, there have been continued changes to provide improved accommodation for vulnerable road users through work zones in the City. Morgan will discuss the timeline of these changes, how we got to this point, and where we aim to be with the release of the 2022 Manual.
