Mission to spend $25,000 for new four-way stop at problem intersection

Plan is to improve safety at the corner of Cade Barr Street and Best Avenue.

Mission council has decided to spend $25,000 to improve safety at the corner of Cade Barr Street and Best Avenue.

Currently a two-way stop intersection, council has decided to upgrade it to a four-way stop.

The intersection has been the site of several accidents. According to ICBC stats, from 1996 to 2009, there were 28 motor vehicle accidents reported and another seven accidents between 2010 and 2013.

Last month, a 10-year old boy was struck at the intersection while crossing the road.

In 2010, council decided to install “high crash location” signs at the intersection and cleared vegetation in order to enhance sightlines.

Now the plan is to install two new oversized stop signs, add red flashing beacons to all four stop signs, relocate the north crosswalk, modify the curb, and add rumble strips on Cade Barr Street – from Ross to Best avenues – to slow down drivers.

The changes are likely a temporary measure as the district’s capital project program suggests that based on traffic volume counts and population growth estimates in the area, the intersection will need to be upgraded to a traffic signal light by 2020.
