Construction of temporary curb extensions and pavement markings will begin soon near the intersections of 47A Avenue and Garry Street in Ladner.

The city is notifying residents that the work, which includes relocating stop signs and no parking signs, is scheduled to be completed by mid-December. The hours of work will be from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Friday.

The engineering department notes a study of intersection safety improvements and traffic calming along the 47A Avenue corridor and concluded that the intersection at Garry Street would benefit from additional traffic safety measures.

The engineering department last fall launched a review the corridor following several accidents, which prompted safety concerns including vehicle speeds along the avenue.

Staff reviewed ICBC claims information and traffic data, including speeds and volumes, and retained a transportation consultant to provide peak hour traffic and pedestrian counts at the intersections of 47A Avenue at Delta Street, Garry Street and 48B Street.
