MACKENZIE – A pedestrian crossing has been relocated and others have been updated to be consistent of signs and paint markings thanks to a $200,000 investment from the B.C. government.

“Safety is a top priority for our government,” Prince George-Mackenzie MLA Mike Morris said. “Taking preventative measures by relocating and upgrading pedestrian crossings will help protect people.”

This project is part of the B.C. government’s Community Safety Enhancement program. Under this program, the government is investing nearly $5 million this year on more than 40 projects province-wide. The projects are chosen by the ministry in consultation with local governments and law enforcement, and will benefit recreational and commercial traffic, as well as local residents, commuters and cyclists.
