We’re happy to report that the lights at Blossom Lane/Chapman Avenue and Upper James (south of the LINC) have been fully functional since January 15 and will hopefully add a sense of safety for the many residents in this growing area of our ward.

The new light at the intersection of Blossom Lane/Upper James brings a level of safety to a busy area.
As you can see in the screen grab below, residents had concerns about the lack of options to cross safely on Upper James and residents also made it clear that turning left onto Upper James was not a safe option, putting themselves and others in jeopardy.
With the new light installed, pedestrians have a safer option to cross Upper James Street closer to home and vehicles now have the opportunity to make a safe left-hand turn.
