City road resurfacing to cover 17 kilometres

May 16, 2014 - 3:52 PM

The City of Kelowna's 2014 pavement management program is set to begin after the May long weekend with the first section at Commonwealth Road. Approximately 17 kilometres will be resurfaced this year, involving eight different road segments (see list below).

The pavement management program prioritizes and determines how to upgrade and repair the roads surface based on various tests and software analysis that provide a numerical ranking for each road.

Short-term lane closures or detours will be in effect. For the purpose of public safety and quality control, traffic control personnel will direct motorists and local residents to stay off the newly treated road segments until they have sufficiently cured. The public's cooperation and patience will be appreciated.

City of Kelowna personnel have already begun preparing the selected road segments by cleaning, sweeping, sealing cracks, flushing and completing some minor shoulder repairs. Residents will be notified when resurfacing work is to begin in their area.

Approximately $2.5 million will be invested in road overlays this year with the work expected to be complete by October.
