Slow down and watch for new crosswalk on Wade Ave E and Government Street

Service Announcement

The City is alerting drivers to watch for traffic changes along Wade Avenue E and Government Street, which includes a new crosswalk that connects Papineau Street with the Penticton Creek pedestrian footbridge. 

The speed limit has been lowered to 30 km/hr along this section between Ellis Street and Burns Street for improved pedestrian safety. Also, flashing lights will soon be operational at the crosswalk for enhanced visibility. 

This work has been a part of the Penticton Creek restoration project, which involved initiatives throughout the neighbourhood to improve traffic and pedestrian safety. For more information about this, and other construction projects, visit
