The traffic signal on the Alaska Highway at 100th ave. is now complete.

The camera system has been replaced with a detector embedded in the pavement at the intersection, known as a traffic loop, which is a more reliable technology for triggering a traffic light, especially in northern climates.

The improvement will not only be safer and provide more efficient traffic movement at this intersection, but also promote less time wasted by drivers waiting for the light to change.

“This replacement will help improve traffic safety at this busy intersection,” said Peace River North MLA Pat Pimm.

Previously, the signal used a camera to detect vehicles approaching the intersection and switch the signal green.

The province provided $60,000 for the project.
