Munroe Ave. Reduced Speed School Zone
For the safety of the elementary students of Polson School and St. Alphonsus School, we the undersign are petitioning the City Of Winnipeg to implement a reduced speed school zone on Munroe Avenue in the area of Polson and St Alphonsus school.
Munroe Avenue would not normally qualify for a reduced speed school zone as it is classified a regional street. However, we believe that an exception should be made because:
- There are two elementary schools on adjacent street blocks on Munroe.
- A reduce speed school zone from 50 kilometers per hour to 30 kilometres would have a minimal slowing down on traffic flow. Munroe Avenue terminates at Henderson Hwy. only one block west of St. Alphonsus School, and where traffic must already reduce speed to make a turn or stop for a traffic light.
