New Informative Street Name Signs Appear in Colwood

City of Colwood
COLWOOD - Residents of Colwood,, BC are noticing that new new street name signs are being installed in some neighbourhoods. It's one simple step the City is taking to make people aware of walking and cycling connections, encourage active transportation and make it easier to navigate within our community.

By increasing visibility and including more information on the street name signs, the City was able to decrease the number of signs overall. For example, 'no exit' signs were traditionally an additional sign that added visual clutter. Adding this information to the street name blade while doing a general sign review and clean up is one way we're improving how our community looks and feels overall. 

Adding walking and cycling connections is a new feature that will become even more important as the City's Active Transportation Plan brings the construction of new sidewalks and cycling lanes, beginning this year with sections of Painter Road and Metchosin Road and continuing over the next ten years and beyond. 

Signs will be replaced throughout Colwood over the next 12 to 18 months, working through the community by tackling it in four sections. The first area in and around Colwood Corners and Colwood Lake Estates is now complete with signs currently being installed. Staff are reviewing signs and connections for the next round of upgrades in the Wishart North and Lagoon neighbourhoods now. That will be followed by the Triangle Mountain and Colwood Creek areas and then the Latoria and Royal Bay areas.
