A report to council notes that a detailed review of ICBC records between 2013 and 2017 indicated there had been three property damage crashes at the location. The city has also received a number of complaints about the intersection, including concerns over dangerous drivers.

The engineering department earlier this year conducted a survey of residents to gather feedback on proposed safety measures, finding majority support.
