Motorists and pedestrians who haven’t liked navigating the intersection of Lakeshore Drive and Shuswap Street are getting some relief.

On Tuesday, the city put up a four-way stop, including a stop sign for the west entrance to the downtown Askew’s parking lot, to make traffic flow more smoothly and safely.

Rob Niewenhuizen, the city’s director of engineering and public works, said the configuration is similar to the four-way stop added at Ross Street and Lakeshore Drive, which has worked well. He said the latest plan was vetted by the city’s safety committee and the downtown parking commission.
