Overpass nears completion

The first step of the $41-million transportation improvement of Westside Road is nearing completion.

Evelyn Lube, project communications officer, said that the Westside Road interchange project at Westside Road and Highway 97 in West Kelowna, is running on schedule.

“The opening of the interchange is on schedule for Oct. 31,” said Lube.

After that is complete, work will begin on the underpass just up the highway at Nancee Way.

“The temporary intersection that is at Nancee Way right now will be decommissioned. We’ll begin construction on that underpass right away.

“The entire project, which includes the overpass and the Nancee Way underpass, should be completed by the end of next summer.”
