Effective immediately, the intersection of 5th Ave. North and Proctor Street (right in front of the Recreation complex) is now a 4-way stop. This is a busy crossroads seeing much traffic, especially during school hours. By forcing people to stop in all directions drivers will be more aware of the high foot, bicycle and vehicle traffic making a safer intersection. Drivers should be aware when approaching this new intersection configuration and plan accordingly.
This planned change to a 4-way stop is a result of the new entrance to the new off-street parking for Kiwanas Park and the Cariboo Memorial Recreation Centre (CMRC). It is expected that the new arm of the 5th and Proctor intersection into the new parking area will opened on Monday, September 12th as work begins on the restoration, and repaving of the old parking areas in front of the CMRC.
