Preliminary work starts on Bernard Avenue revitalization

The $14.5 million revitalization work on Bernard Avenue is not scheduled to start until this fall, but the city is getting an early start to figuring out what lies beneath the surface of the street.

Alternating lane restrictions are now in effect on Bernard during the evenings to accommodate underground geotechnical investigation for the detailed design for streetscape, utility and road improvements.

The work started Sunday and crews will work at night until Wednesday (Jan. 25) from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m. the following morning between Abbott Street and Richter Street. Two-way traffic will be maintained.

The city says motorists may experience minor delays and are asked to be aware of contractors controlling traffic during the lane restrictions.

Fr more information go to kelowna.ca/roadreport for the most up to date road construction and potential delays.

The city has approved the revitalization work which will take place this fall and in the spring and fall of 2013.

Merchants on the street will contribute 25 per cent of the streetscaping portion of the project.
