Back in January SaultOnline featured a story that included 12 videos showing collisions occurring at an alarming rate at the Gore and Albert Streets intersection.
The traffic lights at the intersection were removed as part of ‘Project Transform Gore.’
The change included giving motorists on Gore St. the right-of-way, from Queen St. through to Wellington St.
New stop signs were installed for both lanes of the one-way, east bound traffic traveling Albert Street.
Just today a video was posted of another collision.(below)
Still going on!

The matter was discussed at City Council, and shortly after two parking meters on Gore St were covered, eliminating vehicles from blocking the line of sight for east bound Albert Street motorists.
The parking meters have now been replaced with a ‘No Parking’ sign. We also noted that the snowbank on the south west side of Albert has been cut right down as well.
On the one hand, two prime parking spots are no longer available on Gore, on the other hand, visibility might be improved for Albert Street traffic to safely cross.
But, as Joanne Denis, who posted today’s collision video said, “It’s still happening!”
