Support Fort St John News

DAWSON CREEK, B.C. –  The Peace River Regional District is supporting a letter issued to the Minister of Transportation to update Braden Road stop signs.

During their January 14th council meeting, Fort St. John City Councillor Tony Zabinsky brought up the letter sent to Rob Fleming, Minister of Transportation, and MLAs from Peace River North and South, Dan Davies and Mike Bernier, respectively.

The letter discusses stop sign safety and the numerous accidents that have taken place on Highway 97 at Braden Road, most recently in November.

Davies and Bernier ask that the Ministry install rumble strips on the road and a flashing red light on the stop signs at both ends of the road.

Zabinksy was in support of the letter and recommended sending a response in support to Fleming.

Fort St. John Mayor Lori Ackerman was also in favour of the letter, saying it’s not just the stop signs but the intersections in general.

“I travel that road whenever I head down to Prince George, and the care and attention at those intersections need to be addressed. It’s not just the stop signs, you’re sliding out into traffic because you’re trying to stop. I think that our letter needs to include the condition of the road.”
