The City of Castlegar has announced it will install 12 new signs along Columbia Avenue meant to direct visitors to locations such as Millennium Park and Zuckerberg Island.

The signs will be electrified at night and point the way to a number of amenities.

“We are excited to get these new signs up to help people easily find what they are looking for in Castlegar,” said Anne Simonen, City of Castlegar engineering technician, in a statement.

“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.”

Four marker posts will also be installed in the residential area of downtown to show the location of Millennium Park and the ponds.

Construction on the signs is expected to begin Sept. 12 and be completed later this fall.
