Planned 2021 Projects
Dogwood street / 13th avenue: traffic signal replacement
The traffic signal at Dogwood Street and 13th Avenue (by the downtown Fire Hall) will be replaced in 2021. The signal is aging and is in need of a complete replacement. This project will include new bases, new poles, new arms, new signal heads, a new controller box, new street lights, an accessible pedestrian system, pedestrian countdown timers and an emergency vehicle pre-emption system.
In addition, the City will add left turn arrows in all four directions. Work is expected to start in early 2021.
S. Dogwood street / s. alder street: new crosswalk
The City is reviewing options to improve safety of both vehicles and pedestrians at this intersection. This may include a new crosswalk. The decision was made based on the new pathway on one side of Dogwood, a well used pathway on the other side of Dogwood, and the new subdivision at Jubilee Heights.
2020 Transportation Projects
highway 19a and 1st avenue: new crosswalk
The City has installed a new crosswalk at Highway 19A and 1st Avenue, including 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 has contributed $6,900 towards this crosswalk.
Shared Road Use: Highway 19A, 5th to 6th Avenues
At the February 24, 2020 Council meeting, the decision was made to remove parking on the east side of Highway 19A and install bike lanes both sides on Highway 19A between 5th Avenue and 6th Avenue. This has created continuous bike lanes from 1st Avenue to the Maritime Heritage Centre. Work was done in the summer.
