Intersection to get advance arrows

Left-turn advanced arrows have been approved at a contentious Vernon intersection.

The city confirmed Tuesday it has an agreement with the transportation ministry to incorporate left-turn arrows north and southbound at 39th Avenue and 32nd Street.

The addition of the left-turn arrows is hoped to significantly assist traffic flow towards the Visitor Information Centre, along with the Vernon Recreation Centre and Vernon Performing Arts Centre.

“It is great news,” said City of Vernon transportation engineer Amanda Watson.

“We put the request in, their traffic engineer did the analysis and now they’re working on the design.”

Unfortunately, no time frame has been given as to when the signal will be improved with the addition of the left-turn arrows.

Discussions between the city and province continue as to costs involved and who will pay.

The city hopes a cost-sharing deal can be worked out.
