Annual road paving program starts in Kelowna

Nineteen kilometres of road will be resurfaced between now and October.

Kelowna’s 2013 pavement management program is underway.

Approximately 19 kilometres will be re-surfaced involving nine different road segments,says city hall.

The pavement management program prioritizes and determines how to upgrade and repair the road surface based on various tests and software analysis that provide a numerical ranking for each road.

Short-term lane closures or detours will be in effect during the work. For safety and quality control, traffic control personnel will be directing motorists and local residents to stay off the newly treated roads until the paving has sufficiently cured.

City personnel have already begun preparing the selected road segments by cleaning, sweeping, sealing cracks, flushing and completing some minor shoulder repairs. Residents will be notified when resurfacing work is to begin in their area.

The 2013 asphalt and paving contract was awarded to Emil Anderson Construction Inc. for approximately $2.5 million. The  work is expected to be complete by October.
