City installing traffic signals at Ospika and 22nd

Work on installing traffic signals at Ospika Boulevard and 22nd Avenue began today.

The work, being carried out by McElhanney Engineering, IDL Projects, and Westcana Electric, is scheduled to be completed by mid-August.

The new signals will be similar to those installed in 2017 at the Ospika and Ferry Avenue intersection.

They will have vehicle detection technology and pedestrian-activated crosswalks.

Left-turn lanes will be added to 22nd Avenue in both directions and are already present at the intersection on Ospika. Nearby streetlights will also be updated.

Mayor Lyn Hall said the work is part of the city's ongoing effort to improve traffic safety around the city.

At various times throughout the operation, Ospika Boulevard will be reduced to single lane traffic in each direction. 22nd Avenue may also experience single-lane alternating traffic and full closures.

"The City of Prince George wishes to thank residents in advance for their patience while this operation is being conducted, and for driving cautiously around road and construction crews at all times," officials said.
