ABSTRACT: The Red River Floodway around the City of Winnipeg was constructed in the 1960s as a result of a major flood event in 1950, which required the evacuation of over 100,000 people, flooding of 10,000 homes, and damages in excess of $75.0 Million. The original Floodway is 29 miles long with an average bottom width of 450 feet, flow depth of 30 feet, and design discharge of 60,000 cfs. Six highways and six railway lines cross the Floodway. In 1997, the third largest Red River flood in recorded history passed through Winnipeg with a peak flow of 140,000 cfs. Approximately one half of this flood was diverted through the Floodway. A post-1997 study recommended increasing the Floodway capacity from 60,000 cfs to 140,000 cfs, which has a major impact on the six major highways and six rail lines.
