Pemberton Heights residents raised many concerns with the District of North Vancouver last year about traffic safety and a huge influx of out-of-neighbourhood traffic creating a dangerous situation on Halloween night.
To help manage traffic, the district has offered to place barriers in 7 key locations restricting access to local traffic on high traffic/problematic side streets in Pemberton Heights. Traffic on main routes like West Keith and West 22nd will not be restricted. They will also place a large electronic message board on West Keith Rd near Mackay Ave to alert drivers about the restrictions.
NOTE: Based on neighbourhood feedback the local traffic only restrictions have been updated to cover a wider area.
Barriers will be in place in 7 locations after 5:00/5:30 PM on October 31, 2023 and will be removed at the end of the evening.
Barriers will be placed at:
- W 22nd Street at Cortell
- W 22nd Street at Lloyd Ave
- W 22nd Street @ Bridgman Ave
- W 22nd Street @Philip Ave
- W Keith Rd @ Pemberton Ave / Cortell Street
- W Keith Rd @ Bridgman Ave
- W Keith Rd @ Philip Ave
The district has asked the neighbourhood to assist with setting up and taking down the barriers. Barriers will not be manned, but if you are able to help with checking on them during the evening, please reach out to us or to your block watch captain!
