How do you choose which crosswalks are a priority?
We install two new crosswalks each year.
We evaluate all new crosswalks and upgrades. To do this, we use the province’s Pedestrian Crossing Control Manual for British Columbia.
They must also meet the rules set out in the Signed and Marked Crosswalk warrant.
We base the need for a crosswalk on many factors:
- Traffic volumes
- Traffic speed
- Pedestrian numbers
- Crossing distance of the road
We also try to coordinate sidewalk construction with other projects.
