City council last week approved a contract for the detail design and construction management services of eight crosswalk improvements and one new traffic signal installation.
Crosswalk improvements will be undertaken at the following locations:
80 Avenue at 115 Street
Arthur Drive north of 47 Avenue
Arthur Drive at 45 Avenue
116 Street and 91 Avenue
112 Street at 7 400 Block
Central Avenue at Lions Park
47A Avenue at 48B Street
Boundary Bay Road at the park entrance
The crosswalk upgrades include overhead illuminated signs with flashing beacons, new pushbuttons, rectangular rapid flashing beacons as well as replacement and addition of LED streetlights.
Construction is scheduled to start this summer.
Traffic signal improvements are also planned which includes roadway rehabilitation at the intersection of 116 Street and 83 Avenue.
The new control light to be added at Central Avenue at Lions Park is a project the result of a community petition last fall by six-year-old Ladner resident Arianne Dielman.
