Second Pedestrian Crossover Activated
Date: September 5, 2017
Time: 11:46 AM

September 5, 2017 – Thunder Bay’s second Pedestrian Crossover has been activated today at the intersection of Walsh Street and Selkirk Street. 

Motorists and cyclists using Walsh Street must now stop when a pedestrian is waiting to cross and the crossover lights start flashing. Crossovers make it easy, safe and convenient for people to cross the street.

“There are several advantages to installing pedestrian crossovers in high traffic areas,” said Rick Harms – Project Engineer. “Crossovers are cheaper to implement than signalized intersections and only activate on demand. This means drivers and cyclists aren’t waiting at an empty red light.”
