Biking, walking and aircraft watching at Kelowna International Airport will soon have designated space and be more enjoyable as the Airport Way Multi-Use Corridor project is completed.
Beginning on May 16, road repaving and utility upgrades will begin along Airport Way between Old Vernon Road and Aerospace Drive.
At the same time, a multi-use pathway will be added which will include landscaping, trees, sidewalks, bus shelters and street lights.
In addition, benches will be added for those who enjoy coming out to the airport to observe the landings and takeoffs of various aircraft that frequent YLW.
Vehicles arriving to the airport from the North Okanagan are encouraged to use the main entrance at the lights.
Traffic off Old Vernon Road along Airport Way may experience slight delays.
City of Kelowna crews have been hired as the contractor of this $4.3-million project which is scheduled to be completed by mid-November.
