Fraser Highway and 18600 Block Pedestrian Signal Project
We’re planning to install a new pedestrian signal on Fraser Highway in the 18600 block. This project will help improve pedestrian safety and access between the shopping areas on both sides of Fraser Highway. A fence will also be installed in the median on either side of the new crosswalk, to help discourage jaywalking. This project is part of the Safe and Active Schools Program.
This project is anticipated to begin in the summer and end in late 2016 or early 2017.
This project is part of a construction package that includes other traffic signal and intersection improvement projects. To maximize the efficiency of equipment and resources, typically contractors work at several locations concurrently, with crews responsible for the different types of work involved in roadworks moving between locations as needed.
However, roadwork is heavily dependent on weather, so delays aren’t uncommon and are often related to wet or cool weather. Fronting properties will be notified about five days in advance of the start of construction.
