The City of Moose Jaw is advising that northbound parking and lane changes on First Avenue Northwest will go into effect Monday, Sept. 18.
The project, approved by City Council as part of the 2023 Budget, will see parking stalls added to the east side of First Avenue NW between Manitoba St. and Oxford St.
Each block will have its own, dedicated parking zone number, and drivers can either download and use the city’s HotSpot app to pay for parking, or scan the QR code and pay online without the app. No meters will be installed, but parking lines will be painted.
Drivers are reminded that this change will officially leave First Avenue NW with a single lane of traffic in each direction (north and south), a shared left-turn lane and parking stalls on the outside lanes.
Additionally, at the intersections of Caribou St., Athabasca St., Fairford St., and High St., the designated right turn lane will again be available for use with new overhead signage being installed on the signalized light poles.
Crews have begun installing the new parking stalls and traffic signage, and the new stalls become available for payment in the Hotspot Parking app Monday, Sept 18.
The City of Moose Jaw asks drivers to exercise caution and slow down in work zones for the safety of everyone.
Below is a sample of the signage that will be installed:
