Manitoba Infrastructure has advised the City that the newly installed traffic signals at the intersection of River Avenue and Mountain Road will be activated today (Thursday, September 13), shortly after 2:00 PM.
To coincide with the activation of the new traffic signals, the City has made some changes to the pedestrian crossing in this area. The old location to cross River Avenue to the west of the intersection has been closed, and a new temporary gravel sidewalk is being constructed at the southwest corner of the intersection. The public is strongly advised to cross both River and Mountain at the traffic signals, for increased safety, and ensure any children are also aware of the new, safer crossing location. More permanent concrete sidewalks will be constructed to required standards at the crossing in the spring of 2019.
