According to City Staff, the upgrades being made are in preparation for detour routes that will be used during the reconstruction of 100 Street for the next four years.

City Staff plan to use the upgrades beyond the 100 Street construction period.

Since the funding has been approved, Staff will now issue a tender for the signalization upgrades.
