Crosswalks planned for Highway 3 in Crowsnest Pass

The intersection of Highway 3 (20 Ave) and Highway 40 in Coleman is one of three slated to get a crosswalk.  This intersection is southwest of the Crowsnest Sports Complex and west of Crowsnest Consolidated High School.

Alberta Transportation is preparing to install pedestrian crosswalks on Highway 3 in Coleman. This follows meetings held earlier with Crowsnest Pass council. The flashing crosswalks would be at 79th street, 85th street, and Highway 40. In talks with Transportation planners, only one crosswalk would warrant flashing lights, so the cost of two more would have to be picked up by the municipality. Not so, says the Mayor. Blair Painter says we were promised by higher up officials that the province would pay for the flashing lights. Council passed a motion approving three crosswalks, as per discussions.
