All three intersections warrant signals based on criteria that evaluate traffic volumes, delays and safety, said Pat Grisak, co-ordinator of traffic management with the city, via email Monday.

“Traffic safety is a paramount concern for the City of Calgary, and the three intersections on John Laurie Boulevard N.W. require traffic signals to address the collision issues that are occurring along the corridor,” he said.

“Traffic signals at Brisebois Drive N.W. will also provide the community a much-desired, safe crossing for pedestrians walking to Nose Hill Park.”
