Moose Jaw, SK – Beginning Tuesday, November 2, 2021, the intersection of Caribou St./9th Avenue NW will reopen with new lane configurations and traffic signals.
The new lane configurations provide for a left-turn only lane, and a shared through/right turn lane at all 4 legs of the intersection.
- The previous Split Signal Phases Operation(lights green for one direction at a time) will be replaced with a Conventional Signal Phasing Operation, which will allow through traffic and pedestrian movements to occur concurrently – i.e. northbound/southbound together, and eastbound/westbound together, and left turn green arrows will come up when there are vehicles in the left turn lanes (left-turn arrows will not be used during off-peak hours like evenings or overnight).
The new lane configurations will also allow left and right turn bus movements. Previously, buses needed to straddle both lanes to navigate right turns at the intersection.
During the evening and overnight, the signals will rest in green for northbound/southbound traffic, but will switch when sensors detect eastbound or westbound traffic on Caribou St.
The intersection will open to traffic by 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, November 2, 2021.
