To improve traffic flow and safety, a new four-way stop is being implemented today downtown at the intersection of 5 Avenue South and 7 Street South.
Based on ongoing analysis by Transportation staff, this intersection was identified for a four-way stop to address traffic volumes and the number of right-angle collisions at this location.
New traffic signs are in place, and signage is posted around this intersection to advise motorists of this change to traffic controls. Motorists are asked to take note of this change and drive courteously.
