Ready, Set, Let’s Go! Wayfinding Signs Coming to Castlegar

Wayfinding sign

The City of Castlegar is installing new wayfinding signs to help residents and visitors navigate in the City.

The wayfinding sign project includes the installation of:

•12 signs along Columbia Avenue, that will be electrified at night, to direct travellers to amenities, including Millennium and Kinsmen Parks, Zuckerberg Island, Library, City Hall, Recreation Complex, Community Health Centre, and more; and

•4 marker posts in the residential area downtown to help people find Millennium Park & Ponds.

“We are excited to get these new signs up to help people easily find what they are looking for in Castlegar,” says Anne Simonen, City of Castlegar Engineering Technician. “This is the final phase of our City-wide signage program, which started with the installation of new signage and sculpture pads at the City’s entrances.”

This work will be done by a local contractor, Martech Electrical Systems Ltd. Construction is expected to begin September 12 and be complete later this fall.

The City of Castlegar is a service centre in the West Kootenay. The diversified and growing economy is focused on the forestry, energy and mining sectors in the valley, and commercial services in the City. Quality of life features backcountry adventure and an increasingly dynamic urban culture, including the Millennium Park & Ponds and Sculpture Walk.
