Carmanah’s Roadway Division has supplied the City of Victoria, BC, with two units of its R450 edge-lit crosswalk signs. These units are now installed at an uncontrolled crosswalk on Bay Street and Dowler Street in Victoria, BC.
The City of Victoria needed to upgrade this special crosswalk from smaller, fluorescent illuminated signs to 3′ x 4′ illuminated RA-5 signs to improve pedestrian and driver safety. Special Crosswalks are a standard crosswalk treatment in Canada for uncontrolled marked crossings, and include internally illuminated RA-5* pedestrian signs. RA-5 signs are mandatory at all Canadian crosswalks and are part of the Canadian Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Canada**. In addition to the savings on maintenance and energy, The City of Victoria chose Carmanah’s R450 edge-lit signs because of their previous success with Carmanah’s LED illuminated street-name signs.
