Traffic delays along Lakeshore Road to start May 19

Road upgrades will continue on Kelowna's Lakeshore Road, between KLO and Lanfranco, May 19 to the end of June.

On May 19 work will begin in preparation for the Lakeshore Road upgrades that will occur as part of the South Pandosy Transit Exchange project.

During this time, sidewalks will remain open and two-way traffic will continue. Drivers can expect short delays on Lakeshore Road between KLO and Lanfranco roads as traffic will operate with the assistance of flaggers. The patience of residents, businesses and motorists is appreciated during this period.

Construction is expected to be complete by the end of June.

The improvements will provide ease of transfer along with new amenities that provide a comfortable and convenient environment for transit patrons and operators.

Kelowna RapidBus is a partnership between Transport Canada, the BC Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, City of Kelowna, District of West Kelowna, Westbank First Nation and BC Transit. In total, the project will receive up to $46 million from federal, provincial and local partners.
