Safer crosswalk takes shape along Second Avenue Corridor

Getting closer ... progress is being made on the new lighted crosswalk
at one of the busiest crossings along Second Avenue West

New signage is in place at one of the city's key crosswalks in the downtown core, with contractors for the Ministry of Transportation in town the last few days to hook up the new lighted crosswalk.

The latest in safety additions is located at the Canada Post/BMO bank intersection, which saw the removal of one of the existing crosswalks a few weeks ago, leaving just the one to transit between the Post Office and Chevron.

The crosswalk infrastructure while in place, is not fully active just yet, with the backlighting still to be turned on to make for a more visible notification of the crossing.

The work has been part of a long running remediation project for all of the intersections along Second Avenue West, with new traffic lights and cross walk stations put in place as well along the main thoroughfare through the city.

As we noted back in February, the to do list from the Ministry covered a range of items that had been raised by the community over the last few years.

Some of the other work by the Ministry of Transportation across the Northwest can be reviewed here.
