New stop sign on Gore Street at Albert Street and lane reduction on Albert Street between Andrew Street and Gore Street

Albert Street between Andrew and Gore Street will be reduced to one lane with a new all-way stop at the Gore Street and Albert Street intersection beginning Wednesday, February 10, 2021.

City staff will temporarily close the curb lane on the north side with concrete barricades. There will be space left between the barricades for residents to safely enter and exit out of driveways. Public Works will also ensure the maintenance of snow removal during the winter months. This new stop sign and lane reduction will address on-going traffic safety at the Gore Street and Albert Street intersection. Full construction to re-align Albert Street will take place in the summer of 2021.

Motorists and pedestrians are urged to take caution and obey all signage in the area during this time. The City of Sault Ste. Marie thanks its citizens for their cooperation.

  1. They sure have saved a lot of money since pulling the lights out of that intersection. Whoever is in charge of traffic control and flow in this city needs to go back to school and get a clue.

  2. If that is the new plan would it not have been a lot cheaper to just put the lights back up. Spend Spend Spend that is all this council knows.

  3. I’m all for an all way stop, but reducing the lanes on Albert is overkill unless they intend on making the entrance half a left hand turn only.
