It may have just reopened after several months of being closed for revitalization work, but Bernard Avenue is closing again. But this time for a much shorter time.
Starting at 7 a.m on Thursday, June 13 and running until 5 p.m. that same day, Bernard Avenue, from Richter Street to, and including, the St. Paul Street intersection, will be closed to through traffic for top lift paving.
On Friday, June 14 Bernard Avenue will require intermittent lane restrictions from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. to complete the top lift on Bertram and St. Paul streets and line markings on the permanent asphalt.
City officials say this schedule is subject to change as paving is weather dependant and precipitation could cause delays.
Sidewalks on the affected streets will remain open, businesses will remain accessible and angle parking between St. Paul and Ellis streets will be available as usual.
Traffic control personnel will be directing motorists and pedestrians, so the public’s cooperation and patience will be appreciated, says City Hall.
With the early completion of the second phase of the $14-million revitalization project on Kelowna’s “Main Street,” the city says there is an opportunity to expedite the project and complete final paving before the originally scheduled time in spring of 2014.
