Bernard Avenue Phase 1 gets early final paving

Beginning Monday June 3, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., intermittent traffic interruptions will occur on Bernard Avenue from Richter to Ellis streets to raise manholes and prepare the road surface for top lift paving scheduled the following week, weather depending.

Traffic control personnel will be directing motorists. The public’s cooperation and patience will be appreciated.

With the second phase of the $14 million revitalization project on Kelowna’s “Main Street” nearing completion ahead of schedule, there is an opportunity to complete final paving in the first phase which was originally scheduled for spring of 2014.

All transit routes into and out of the Queensway transit station will continue as usual, with minor downtown routing adjustments. Visit for schedules.

The City of Kelowna thanks residents, businesses and motorists for their patience while construction is taking place.
