MOOSE JAW, SK– The City of Moose Jaw is pleased to announce that an enhanced pedestrian crossing at Wood Lily Drive and Arrowhead Road has been installed.

Safety measures included in the project consist of new pedestrian ramps, concrete sidewalk, new traffic signs, and new Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons (RRFBs) at the crossing. Some minor concrete work remains, but the RRFBs are fully functional, and the enhanced pedestrian crossing has been well used already.

The use of RRFBs to identify pedestrians at enhanced crossing locations is the recommended equipment found in the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Canada. The City will be progressively moving toward updating traffic control mechanisms (traffic signs, line painting, etc.) to be in compliance with this standard.

Funding for the project was provided by the Provincial Traffic Safety Fund Grant program.

If you notice equipment that needs attention, use the “Report an Issue” feature at MooseJaw.ca or on the free City app.
