VERNON - Things will look a little different in downtown Vernon after two streets are transformed into one-ways.

Vernon council officially approved the implementation of a one-way couplet on 28 Avenue and 29 Avenue, from 30 Street to 29 Street, during a meeting earlier this week.

Parking on the one-way streets will be changed to angled parking and the city is also looking into the possibility of installing ‘pay and display’ equipment which would require drivers to purchase time from a ticket dispenser and place the receipt on their windshield.

Road work has already begun on 28 Avenue subject to council’s decision, and the 29 Avenue project will be tendered for construction later this year.

Portions of 28 Avenue and 29 Avenue will be turned into one-ways.
