Clearview and Island Park Drive Traffic Light News Update

From our city councillor Jeff Leiper’s newsletter today:

IPD/Clearview pedestrian crossing

I’ve been fielding a few questions about when the signalized pedestrian crossing is expected to be completed. It’s a very good question. We’ve been given multiple dates by the City that have all fallen through. I’ve raised my concern over the length of time it’s taking to accomplish this with senior staff and the latest timeframe we’ve been given is from mid- to the end-of-October. I’m treating that with a grain of salt. What we do know is that there’s a finalized work order in place, but that materials are apparently on back order. The crossing is coming. I just don’t know when.

One thought on “Clearview and Island Park Drive Traffic Light News Update

  1. It would be great to see this prioritized by the city. That intersection is busy at many times of the day and on weekends, and it’s hazardous for cyclists and pedestrians. Other options to cross are a long way away. I worry someone will get hurt or worse while we wait.
