The District of West Kelowna has started work on the second phase of the Casa Loma Drainage Project, beginning with work on a portion of Campbell Road.
Residents in the area can expect dust, noise, vibrations and traffic disruptions.
Colmar Construction Ltd. has been contracted to perform the storm sewer installation between 2545 and 2627 Campbell Road from March 17 to April 30.
Due to the narrow road width and significant pipe size, single lane alternating traffic with up to 15 minute delays for motorists will be required.
Work will be performed from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday to Friday, with possible weekend work when required.
According to a District of West Kelowna statement, the district and its contractor recognize the inconvenience these delays will cause, and they thank motorists for their patience and understanding.
Residents are reminded to consider these construction delays when planning travel through that section of Campbell Road.
Priority access will be maintained for emergency vehicles and school buses. Residents living in the work zone will be assisted with garbage collection.
On evenings and weekends, traffic in the southbound lane will have the right of way and northbound traffic will yield to oncoming traffic.
Appropriate signage will be placed in the work zone to alert vehicle and pedestrian traffic.
The district anticipates the $700,000 project will be substantially completed by the end of May.
