GRANDE PRAIRIE, Alta. — Truck routes and downtown traffic were hot topics at an open house on Grande Prairie’s transportation master plan last week.

“The main issue that I was talking to people about was truck routes,” Dave McRae, consultant with Infrastructure Systems Ltd. told local media.

Attendees wanted to know if there would be a truck route built on 116 St. south of 84 Avenue.

McRae says that such a plan is under consideration, and that the city is focusing on separating truck routes from neighborhoods.

The city is also investigating the possibility of converting 101 Avenue from its current two-way system to two lanes westbound and one lane eastbound.

Once it’s completed, the transportation master plan will go before the city’s public works committee and then onto council for approval, which should happen around June.
