With the exciting changes to our downtown, the City recognized a need for interim signage to support the more than 3 million visits annually to the Rogers Place arena.
These interim signs provide flexibility in accommodating downtown roadway construction over the next several years.
Interim signs are:
- Located at 38 locations around downtown with a few signs in Chinatown and Little Italy
- Based on the design of the permanent signs
- Mounted on basic road sign material for temporary use
Permanent signs will be installed in 2018/19 in areas not impacted by current or imminent construction, initially in Old Strathcona, Downtown and on Stony Plain Road. Interim signs will continue to be utilized where LRT or Streetscape construction will occur.
Future signage is planned for other pedestrian areas around the city, as well as at LRT stations (including the Valley Line) and transit centres.
