Several capital projects start this month and next in West Kelowna.
City crews and contractors will begin construction to extend sidewalks and bike lanes, improve drainage, upgrade sanitary sewer and complete flood mitigation work to protect infrastructure.
Projects scheduled to start this summer include:
- Active transportation upgrades on Old Okanagan Highway, which include 300 meters of additional sidewalks, bike lanes and drainage improvements from Dobbin Road to Ingram Road;
- Channel improvements in McDougall Creek, near Shannon Lake Road, to complete restoration work and increase the capacity of the creek;
- Culvert upgrades near Inverness Road in Glenrosa to improve stormwater drainage and mitigate flood risks;
- Flood mitigation work in Rock Ridge Park in West Kelowna Estates, which includes reconstruction of degraded channel bed and banks;
- Lift station upgrades on Stevens and Sunnyside Roads to meet existing and future demands;
- Micro-surfacing of East Boundary Road to lengthen the useful life of the pavement;
- Construction of the Boucherie Multi-use Pathway is ongoing and will continue into October.
Later this summer, the city will provide an update on fall projects, including the Road Rehabilitation Program and drainage improvements in the Green Bay neighbourhood.
More information on these projects is available on the City of West Kelowna website.
