Additional Pedestrian Lights Will Be Added to Each Intersection
Although installation of the new Main Street traffic signals is finished, the project will not be considered complete until pedestrian lights are added to each intersection. Each lighted intersection will be installed with four more signals to ensure safe navigation from all directions on the crosswalks.
According to Town of Kindersley, approximately $261,000 has been spent on the new traffic signals. This was approved by Council in 2016, but due to contractor availability the project was delayed until this spring.
The previous light standards were replaced with new standard hight pole and davit arm that extends over the roadway, giving improved visibility. The signals are high enough to accommodate semi-trailer trucks as Main Street is a heavy truck route. These new light standards replace the previous infrastructure which was outdated and had safety issues due to motorist not always seeing when the light was red.
Curb extensions were added to the corner of Main Street and 2nd Avenue East to account for the wider poles.
