Harrison gets first traffic signal

Advance left turn light to ease traffic issues at Lillooet intersection

Pretty soon, Harrison Hot Springs will be able to boast that they have at least one traffic signal.

The ministry of transportation recently announced they’re committing $400,000 toward a new traffic signal at the intersection of Hwy. 9 and Lillooet Ave. The project is set to begin this month and wrap up in early 2015.

The improvement will include a full traffic signal with advanced left turning green, as well as new pavement and painted line markings.

“This a prime example of government listening to communities and working to address local safety concerns,” said Chilliwack-Hope MLA Laurie Throness.
