Following a Council decision made at the October 26 Regular Meeting of Council, and a desire to improve safety at that intersection, the turning signals at Chestermere Blvd. and Rainbow Road have been adjusted to have dedicated advance left turn signals.
What this means is left turns from east and westbound Chestermere Blvd. on to north or southbound Rainbow Road may only be made when the advance turn signal is activated.
Drivers in the north and southbound lanes of Rainbow Road will still be able to turn left on a straight-through green light to east or westbound Chestermere Blvd.
The City’s traffic signal contractor was able to complete the adjustment on November 17. The City is monitoring traffic flow and usage and will make timing adjustments as needed.
Updates on construction and road work will be shared on the Capital Project Tracking System map at chestermere.ca/projects.
