PRINCE GEORGE, BC: The City of Prince George is starting construction today on a project to upgrade the intersection of Domano Boulevard and St. Lawrence Avenue/Gladstone Drive in lower College Heights. The operation will install traffic signals to help facilitate development, improve network access for the surrounding residential and recreational areas, and improve intersection road safety for all modes of transportation.
When complete, the signals will function as a regular intersection featuring “permissive left turns,” which means turning can occur on the green light when it is safe to do so. The new signals will operate in a manner similar to those the City installed in 2019 at the 22nd Avenue and Ospika Boulevard intersection. The lights will remain green on Domano until vehicles approach the intersection on Gladstone Drive or St. Lawrence Avenue. The updated intersection will have vehicle detection technology and pedestrian-activated crosswalks.
This is a detailed project involving excavation, backfilling, electrical work, concrete base construction, and more. As such, construction is expected to take about two months and be complete by the middle of November. Periodic traffic disruption may occur. Please follow on-site signage and directions from road crews. The City of Prince George appreciates the patience and understanding of residents while this important operation is carried out.
Residents are asked to please drive cautiously whenever around road crews.
