The District of West Kelowna will start work this week on the Casa Loma Drainage Project – Phase 2, beginning with work on a portion of Campbell Road. As with all projects of this magnitude, residents in the area can expect dust, noise, vibrations and traffic disruptions.
Colmar Construction Ltd. has been contracted to perform the storm sewer installation between 2545 and 2627 Campbell Road from March 17 to April 30, 2014. Due to the narrow road width and significant pipe size, single lane alternating traffic with up to 15 minute delays for motorists will be required. Work will be performed from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Friday, with possible weekend work when required.
The District and its contractor recognize the inconvenience these delays will cause and thanks motorists for their patience and understanding. Residents are reminded to please consider these construction delays when planning travel through this section of Campbell Road. Priority access will be maintained for emergency vehicles and school buses. Residents living in the work zone will be assisted with garbage collection.
On evenings and weekends, traffic in the southbound lane will have the right of way and northbound traffic will yield to oncoming traffic. Appropriate signage will be placed in the work zone to alert vehicle and pedestrian traffic.
The District anticipates that the $700,000 project will be substantially completed by the end of May 2014. For more information on this project, please visit www.districtofwestkelowna.ca. Click on In The Works/Casa Loma Drainage Improvements Phase 2.
