A new set of traffic lights are now being used in Grande Prairie. The signals at 108 Street and 132 Avenue were activated Thursday.
They were put in place to help with increased traffic from growth in the area, including the new St. Jean Paul II Catholic School and Trader Ridge development. The City and County of Grande Prairie split the cost 50/50, which was originally estimated to be around $400,000.
More upgrades are still happening in the area, including some paving and the installation of a pedestrian pathway on the east side of 108 Street. That should be done by late September.
