During the closure, access to Hewlett Road will be maintained for properties located within the work zone, and a designated detour will be available for others through Todd and Grantham roads. Grantham Road will be open while Spiers Road is closed.

The City of Kelowna scheduled the construction for early August so as not to impact traffic once school starts again in September.
