Sign of the times: Edmonton working on new wayfinding system for pedestrians
The city’s wayfinding team says it’s close to finalizing its design standard for 86 new pedestrian signs expected to go up around Edmonton by next spring.
“It’s been a bit of a journey … the signage will be lit, which was really critical for the Winter City strategy folks. Certainly our seasons are a little bit darker. There was also discussion of colouring and what would stand out from a distance,” said Ian Hosler, project manager for the Wayfinder Project, which held an open house Tuesday to present the latest design standard to stakeholders and members of the public.
Hosler said once the design standard is approved, he hopes to have the tender finalized by June so that the city can roll out interim signage in August.
