Closures expected for Water Street

The street will be closed in the evenings

Water Street will be closed for resurfacing between Queensway and Cawston Avenue from 5:30 p.m. to midnight beginning Monday, June 12, until Thursday, June 15, depending on the weather.

Pedestrian crosswalks to Queensway and Law Courts will be maintained.

Motorist access will be open during paving to the Delta Grand Resort entrance and parking, Lake City Casino entrance and parking and Prospera Place parking.

There will be no on-street parking in the construction area during road resurfacing. Cars left on Water Street during this construction period will be courtesy towed. Visit the City of Kelowna’s website to find alternate parking locations downtown.

This work is typically completed with minimal traffic impact, but pumps operating in the area to lower the groundwater level necessitates the full road closure.

This project is one of several road segments that are included in the city’s annual Pavement Management Program, which prioritizes the repair of city roads. The mill and fill treatment applied on this section of Water Street will extend the road surface life by 15 to 20 years.

Please obey signage and traffic safety personnel as every effort will be made to minimize disruptions for motorists, residents and businesses.
