More Westbank Centre traffic disruptions expected

West Kelowna residents can expect a few more detour signs in Westbank Centre.

Brown Road is now closed from Highway 97 to just south of Bering Road until approximately the end of May as the district completes phase one of the Brown Road Streetscape Improvement Project.

Motorists are advised to use Old Okanagan Highway and then proceed along Bering, Gossett, Apollo or Drought Roads to access area businesses, churches and residences.

Some businesses and residences are also accessible via Hoskins Road, off Main Street.

The Brown Road Streetscape Improvement Project phase one is nearing completion with sidewalks, landscaping, street furniture, final paving and line painting still to be done.

Elliott Road, between Main Street and Dobbin Road, is closed for the construction of a RapidBus transit exchange, expected to be open in July.

Motorists are advised to use Hebert Road, Old Okanagan Highway or Brown Road—south of Main Street—to avoid the closed section of Elliott Road.
