The Airport Site Redevelopment program had three main components, the Terminal Building and Parkade, the Groundside Site Development (GSD) and the Airside Site Development. The GSD included a 506 m long Elevated Roadway, consisting of the Departures Level Bridge and Up and Down Ramps. The Elevated Roadway was designed to complement the open concept of the new Airport Terminal Building. The structure consists of well spaced columns and a post-tensioned ribbed beam superstructure in order to meet the architectural and functional requirements. The Upper Departures Level Bridge and Lower Arrivals Level help to provide Winnipeg with a truly modern airport facility.
