“In a combined effort to increase safety, works have been undertaken by all parties to guide pedestrians to the intersection at 22nd Ave. to cross the highway”, stated the Ministry.

Earlier this year, a student attending The College of New Caledonia was struck and killed as she crossed Hwy 97 from a path at the College. That path led out to an old bus stop and many pedestrians crossed the Hwy from there. The path was removed shortly after the deadly accident. Read more on that here.

The ministry also told PJXM improvements to the 22nd Ave intersection signals are also upcoming.
