2019 Transportation Projects

Highway 19A / St. Ann’s Road: Traffic Signal Replacement

The traffic signal at Highway 19A / St. Ann’s Road was replaced in the summer of 2019.

This busy downtown intersection near Robert Ostler Park has had traffic lights and left turn arrows added to north and south-bound signals,” explains Drew Hadfield, the City’s director of operations. “The previous signal was installed in 1991 by the BC Ministry of Transportation and Highways and is now due to be replaced.”

The new left-turn arrows for traffic travelling north and south will make turning safer from Pier Street turning left toward City Hall, and from Shoppers Row turning left toward the ferry terminal.

Other improvements at the intersection include new:

  • traffic controller and box
  • bases and poles
  • street name signs
  • traffic signal heads
  • LED luminaires
  • accessible pedestrian system
  • pedestrian countdown timers
  • emergency vehicle pre-emption system

ICBC contributed $6,100 towards this project.

Highway 19A / Maryland Road: New Traffic Signal

A new traffic signal will be installed at Highway 19A / Maryland Road intersection, with constructing starting August 19, 2019.

“Replacing the existing stop sign with traffic lights will provide a safer way to enter and exit the Maryland area,” says Drew Hadfield, the City’s director of operations. “This work will be done in stages, so drivers won’t see active construction each day during this time.”

New signal includes:

  • traffic controller and box
  • bases and poles
  • street name signs
  • traffic signal heads
  • LED luminaires
  • accessible pedestrian system
  • pedestrian countdown timers
  • emergency vehicle pre-emption system

ICBC will contribute $29,500 towards this project.

New Crosswalks Along Highway 19A

The City has installed new crosswalks along Highway 19A, at 1st Avenue and 6th Avenue. These will include flashing amber lights. In addition, the existing crosswalks along Highway 19A at 2nd Avenue and 5th Avenue will be upgraded to include flashing amber lights.

Drivers are reminded to drive with due care and attention, and to stop for pedestrians waiting to cross.

Pedestrians are reminded to push the button, then cross with caution, after ensuring that traffic has stopped.

ICBC will contribute $28,100 towards these four crosswalks.

New BC Transit Bus Shelters

The City has partnered with BC Transit and will be installing new BC Transit bus shelters at 7 locations in Campbell River. They will be located at:

  • Dogwood Street, southbound, south of 16th Avenue (Mariner Square)
  • South Dogwood Street, northbound, south of Evergreen Road
  • South Alder Street, northbound, north of Holm Road (opposite Southgate Middle School)
  • Dogwood Street, southbound, south of 4th Avenue (Carihi High School)
  • Ironwood Street, southbound, south of 14th Avenue (beside Ironwood Mall)
  • Erickson Road, westbound, west of Nodales Drive
  • Hospital, northbound

Construction will occur in the late summer / fall.

The City would like to thank BC Transit and the federal ICIP (Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program) grant for their financial contributions to this project.
