Lakelse Ave. now three lanes

The central downtown road in Terrace B.C. was painted this morning.

Lakelse Ave. is now officially three lanes, with city crews finishing the work this morning.

Yesterday the central downtown street in Terrace was marked with chalk lines, marking the plans to convert the street from four lanes to three.

Crews painted the new lanes this morning and at 11 a.m. they gathered the cones off the street leaving the shiny new yellow lines to guide the traffic.

The three-lane system was set up by the city to improve traffic flow on that road, allowing room for street parking on the side, without interfering with traffic.
