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
Once downtown construction is completed, permanent signs will be installed. The permanent signage will be installed initially in Old Strathcona, Downtown and on Stony Plain Road (as part of the streetscape work there).
Future signage is planned for other pedestrian areas around the city, as well as at LRT stations (including the Valley Line) and transit centres.
