More stop signs added to detour

Additional stop signs were added to the detour around the King’s Highway reconstruction project today.
Operations and Facilities manager Doug Brown told the Times this morning that the town and contractor had a chance to monitor the traffic flow and congestion over the last 48 hours.
As a result, Bay City Contractors will be installing two additional stop signs along the route.
The stops signs will be for north- and south-bound traffic along Wright Avenue at Third Street West and Second Street West.
This will slow down traffic and allow students from the three area schools—J.W. Walker, St. Francis, and Fort High—to get across Wright Avenue safely, noted Brown.
Additionally, a stop sign will be installed at the corner of King’s Highway and Wright Avenue for westbound traffic coming from Tim Hortons, Subway, and Husky, he added.
