The Southwest Rapid Transit Busway is a 2-lane dedicated busway with both urban and rural cross sections connecting the Stage 1 Busway to the University of Manitoba and reconstruction and widening of a major six-lane divided arterial urban roadway through a heavily travelled underpass. This case study discusses the geometric design that was developed to address site constraints and roadside safety issues to provide a comfortable and safe facility for Winnipeg Transit and the ridership to use for years to come.
This session was initially presented at the 2020 TAC Conference.
