Sk'lep Trail road sign

Sk’lep Trail is among the newly-named roads on campus.

Navigating campus got a bit easier this week thanks to new street signs going up on a few roads, laneways and access areas that were previously unnamed or not well known.

The road signs went up Sept. 22, 2016 (See the graphic below for their locations) and are:

  • WolfPack Road
  • Sk’lep Trail
  • TRU Way
  • University Drive
  • University Drive North
  • College Drive

Street names not only add identity and personality to parts of the university, they assist emergency personnel, contractors and others not familiar with campus, said TRU’s Associate Director of the Office of Safety & Emergency Management, Stacey Jyrkkänen.

As for adding character and identity, Sk’lep Trail recognizes TRU being on the traditional territory of the Secwepemc people. WolfPack Trail refers to the nickname of TRU’s sports teams.
