Flawed road markings in Chilliwack were removed

Your eyes are not deceiving you, Chilliwack motorists.

Road markings for a new left-hand turning lane on Williams Street at Yale Road were recently removed.

The turning lanes were only there for a short while, but were incorrectly placed and had to be removed by the contractor at their expense, according to city staff.

The work was part of the new Chilliwack secondary construction project, with similar traffic upgrades planned for the intersection at Charles and Yale.

The new markings were ground off with a tool that acts like a sanding wheel, and the lanes were back to the way they were about a month ago.

Because the flaw couldn't be fixed, the markings had to be removed, which does happen occasionally, said staff. There was no cost to the City of Chilliwack for the changes.
