The City of West Kelowna says the second phase of improvement on Boucherie Road is nearing completion and the road will be fully open Dec. 7.
Work on the $9.1 million project—dubbed the Wine Route because of the wineries in the area—began in April and involved the construction of:
• 15,300 square metres of asphalt roadway
• 1,200 metres of storm main with varying diametres from 250 mm to 450 mm
• 1,700 metres of 450 mm watermain
• 2,400 metres of concrete curb and gutter
• 4,100 square metres of concrete sidewalk
• 5,700 square metres of cycling track
• 80 ornamental street lights
• Landscape trees, shrubs and irrigation
• Retaining walls
Roundabouts were installed at the Hudson Road/Boucherie Road intersection and the Anders Road/Cordova Way/Boucherie Road intersection.
Miscellaneous landscaping work will continue following the opening of the roadway. Motorists are asked to obey traffic control personnel.
Drivers have been forced to use detours through residential areas of Lakeview Heights during the construction, which took place between Stewart Road and Ogden Road.
