Kelowna road resurfacing to snarl traffic

Repaving on a stretch of Spall Road will start tomorrow and run nightly to May 30.

Starting tomorrow night, between 6 p.m. and 5 a.m. motorists can expect delays along Spall Road in Kelowna, from Highway 97 to Bernard Avenue, due to road resurfacing.

Depending on the weather, the work will run each night until May 30.

The repaving which has already caused traffic back ups in the area as preparations were made for the work over the last week, is just one of several road projects included in the city’s annual pavement management program, which prioritizes the repair of city roads.

The “mill-and-fill” treatment to be applied on the section of Spall Road will extend the road surface life by 15 to 20 years, says the city.

City hall says nearby residents should expect noise during the road resurfacing.
