Mission, BC – The City of Mission will be undertaking a Road Safety Review Project in the communities of Steelhead and Stave Falls to provide an in-depth study of roadway safety and operations for all users.
The review will take place along Keystone Avenue, Hayward Street and a section of Dewdney Trunk Road from Steelhead to Stave Falls. The goal of the project will be to identify any safety deficiencies and provide recommendations for short-term improvements and/or medium to long-term capital upgrades on rural arterial roads. The estimated cost for the project is $70,000 with ICBC committing to fund up to 50% of the total project cost.
“Thank you to the Steelhead Community and Stave Garden Associations for bringing this concern forward”, said Mayor Paul Horn. “It is important that we consider the rural areas in the Transportation Master Plan planning as recreation becomes more popular and the City continues to grow”.
Staff will start working with ICBC to develop a Request for Proposal for the procurement of a qualified roadway safety engineering consultant. It is expected that the project will be completed by the end of 2021. Findings will be shared on mission.ca.
