A new addition to the active transportation corridor in Kelowna is almost ready to bike, scooter, or roller-skate on.

When the corridor is complete, people will be able to safely commute by bike from the Rail Trail in north Kelowna, to the Mission Creek Greenway and the Lower Mission neighbourhoods in the south of the city.

Currently, the active transportation corridor begins in the north of Kelowna at Cawston Avenue and Ethel Street. The corridor travels down Ethel Street until it intersects with Raymer Avenue, at the wastewater treatment facility. Cyclists can ride around the facility on the corridor from Raymer Ave. to Richter Street and then onto K.L.O. Road.

The new section of pathway will continue the corridor from K.L.O. Rd. to Barrera Road., along Casorso Road.

Construction on the new section of the corridor along Casorso is expected to be complete by the end of September.
