Work began this week on improving the crosswalk across Ospika Boulevard at Davis Road.
Improvements include changes to basic design of crosswalk markings on the asphalt and associated signage to a "rectangular rapid flashing beacon" design, the City says.
Walkers will also be able to push a button to activate flashing lights and alert motorists to their presence at the crossing.
The project is scheduled to be completed by the end of the month.
Later this fall, a similar design will be employed to upgrade the crosswalk on Ospika Boulevard at 1st Avenue, where a pedestrian was hit and seriously injured in early June.
The projects were among those recommended in the City's pedestrian crossing strategy.
Out of the 202 crosswalks evaluated as part of the strategy, 43 were recommended for upgrade or installation - 26 upgrades to existing crosswalks and 17 new crosswalks.
Earlier in the year, the City installed an all-new crosswalk across Massey Drive near Coyle Street and Foot Street by Ginter's Meadow.
