The City of Whitehorse is proposing to replace the traffic signal system at the corner of Fourth Avenue and Main Street during the summer of 2022.
The work will involve removing the existing signals and excavating on the four corners to install large pole bases. Existing concrete sidewalks will be removed and replaced with larger pedestrian friendly sidewalk bulbs.
During construction, detours will be in place for pedestrians and traffic, and all efforts will be made to ensure access to businesses. Public information for a contact person and scheduling will be made available once the contract is awarded.
