Trail work on track

Construction begins on North Okangan leg of rail trail

Construction is getting on track this month on the Okanagan Rail Trail

Work is taking place on the 2.5 km of the trail located in the Regional District of North Okanagan.

In the first half of September, you will see personnel prepping the trail corridor for full construction. This phase will focus on environmental, agricultural and archaeological protection, mitigating potential geotechnical hazards, drainage improvements, and safe road crossings.

Some activities will include a clean up of existing materials, enabling full construction to be more efficient and cost effective. All efforts will be made to mitigate impacts to adjacent properties and the surrounding environment. Parts of the trail will be closed as construction proceeds therefore users are asked to obey all construction and closure signs along the trail.
