Motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes while the work is in progress.

Short-term lane closures and detours will be in effect in the affected areas and motorists will be directed to stay off newly paved road segments by traffic control personnel.

This road work is part of the City of Kelowna’s $3.5-million annual pavement management program that looks to repave 40 lane kilometres by October 2019.
