It is now a bit easier to get around Southfort businesses.
 
The much needed lights on 94 Street by Safeway and Starbucks have been up and running since the first week of February.
 
"It was part of the area structure plans and the development plans for the Southfort neighborhood," said Grant Schaffer, director of project management with the City of Fort Saskatchewan. "We met the threshold and the lights were required."
 
The lights are meant to allow safer movement for vehicles and pedestrians in the intersection.
 
"They'll definitely help people get out of the commercial sites and with the advanced lefts, help people get into them as well," added Schaffer.
 
The new lights cost around $180,000 and there will be more work done in the spring.
 
Prior to the lights being installed, three collisions were reported there in 2017.
 
In the block overall, just over 35 collisions were reported last year.
