THUNDER BAY – The traffic lights at the intersection of Victoria Avenue and Lillie Street are reactivated. This was the test area for the traffic circle proposed by Councillor Ch’ng.
The City advises that “During the first few days, the signals will be set to a flashing red light to allow drivers time to adjust to the reactivation of the signals. Drivers should treat the flashing red light as an all-way stop. The signals will then resume normal operation on Monday, April 8, 2019”.
The City’s Engineering Division undertook a traffic study earlier this year to determine the requirements for traffic control at the Victoria Avenue and Lillie Street intersection, and the Victoria Avenue and Ford Street intersection.
“During the study, additional and updated traffic data was collected including traffic volumes, collisions, speeds, delays and congestion,” said Matthew Miedema – Project Engineer. “The findings of this study, along with recommendations to safely and efficiently manage traffic and pedestrian activity in the area for the long-term, will be presented to City Council in May.”
