Elliott Road reopens in Westbank Centre

Elliott Road, from Main Street to Dobbin Road, has reopened.

The section of road had been closed since February for the construction of the Westbank RapidBus transit exchange. Construction is still ongoing along this section of Elliott Road and motorists and pedestrians are asked to obey traffic control signage as work continues.

Westgate Road, where the Boucherie Mountain transit exchange was constructed this year, is also now open to vehicle traffic.

The Westbank and Boucherie Mountain exchanges are part of the Kelowna RapidBus project.

Kelowna RapidBus is a partnership between Transport Canada, the B.C. Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, City of Kelowna, District of West Kelowna, Westbank First Nation and BC Transit. Its total cost is $44.5 million.

RapidBus service will come into effect Aug. 31. See kelownarapidbus.ca for service change information.
