Detours around Glenrosa-McIver start on May 14

The detours are part of the road improvement project in the area

The first set of detours around the Glenrosa-McIver Road intersection will start on May 14.

Construction crews will close Glenrosa and McIver Roads for the next few months as part of realignment work at the intersection.

The City of West Kelowna said the upcoming closure and detours will include the following:

  • Closure of Glenrosa Road at McIver Road until approximately November
  • Re-routing access to the south side of Glenrosa Road through Yorkton
  • Rerouting access to the north side of Glenrosa Road through Webber-Gorman-McTaggart-McQueen-McGinnis
  • Placing barricades at the start of the closure area
  • Changing bus stop locations
  • Providing safe passage for pedestrians
  • Reopening the road in the event emergency evacuation is required
  • Maintaining access for local traffic
  • Reducing speed limits to 30 km/h on detour routes

“This road closure will affect people’s daily routines and will likely extend commuting times,” the city’s director of engineering and public works Allen Fillion said.

“We encourage drivers to allow extra travel time and to respect the speed limits for the safety of the neighbourhoods along the detour routes.”

Construction will be divided into three separate stages, which will allow closed sections to re-open after completion of each stage. The city said it will provide information on separate management plans for each of the stages.
