Types of Crosswalks
How Crosswalks are Implemented
The City of Grande Prairie uses crosswalks and traffic signals to keep people safe when crossing the street.
Remember, pedestrians always have right of way at intersections, except when controlled by other traffic control devices, for example traffic signals or a police officer.
