The Proposed Project

The Department of National Defence (DND) is proposing a project. 17 Wing Winnipeg has long had security concerns related to base access at the eastern gate via Air Force Way. In order to address the security concerns, the Department of National Defence approached the City of Winnipeg with a proposed solution that would involve an exchange of land, the closing of Air Force Way to the public near Silver Avenue and the extension of Hangar Line Road on a circular path to the south-west to join Air Force Way.
