Crosswalk Projects

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. [PDF - 1 MB]

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.
