There was talk years ago about realigning Wilkes a few hundred metres south of where it is now (similar to Sterling Lyon to the East) - however, it would be almost impossible now, with all those acreages that the city permitted to develop along the proposed ROW (on McCreary, Loudoun, Liberty, etc.)
Yup. Just your typical Winnipeg foresight!
