Moose Jaw will see the installation of rapid rectangular flashing beacon (RRFB) pedestrian crossing signs at Thatcher Drive and 4th Ave NW. 

"This is designed to improve safety for vulnerable road users,” explained Tyler McMurchy, manager of media relations with SGI. 

This project is one of 55 that was funded through the Provincial Traffic Safety Fund. “Funds for these grants come from the proceeds of photo speed enforcement,” McMurchy added. 

Grant applications are evaluated by a committee of representatives from several organizations, including the Ministry of Highways, SGI, and the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities, among others.  

Moose Jaw received $100,000 out of the $1.3 million allocated funds, which is the maximum amount that a municipality can apply for. 

Applications for the upcoming round of funding are open until September 30, 2024.
