City Looking At Ways To Inform About Changing Road Conditions

 
 

LETHBRIDGE - City administration have been tasked with looking at ways to inform drivers of changing road conditions on Whoop-Up Drive.

 

The area seems to be a continual problem for traffic accidents and City Council would like to hear about ways to both adjust speed limits if necessary and notify drivers of current conditions.

 

Councillor Ryan Parker believes digital signs could be installed, similar to those seen on Deerfoot Trail in Calgary. He says "anytime you can slow people down when roads are getting icy, it saves people time, it saves people's lives, it makes people drive more carefully, so it's instant information given to drivers and I think that's the key."

 

Parker also feels installing signs would not cost too much, saying "with the advancements in technology, with the use of solar power, external batteries, you don't need to be routing in big hard electrical lines for these types of signage, so I can see something like this being done in a very feasible manner."

 

Administration will report back to City Council by January 20th.
