Part of Doyle Avenue closed in July
Beginning at 7 a.m. Monday, July 4, until 7 p.m. Friday, July 29, Doyle Avenue will be closed between St. Paul and Ellis streets for sidewalk and curb construction around the new Kelowna Community Health Services Centre building.
Motorists are asked to watch their speed and follow directions of traffic control personnel. The City of Kelowna and construction workers appreciate the patience of residents, businesses and motorists during the construction season.
The new five story building will house approximately 800 Interior Health staff and is anticipated for completion this year.

Beginning at 7 a.m. Monday, July 4 the intersection of Valley, Cross and Longhill roads will be closed for roundabout construction to improve the safety and efficiency of the intersection for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists.
Detours will be posted and motorists are asked to watch their speed and obey signs and construction safety personnel.
“With the proximity of Brandt’s Creek to this road, extra precautions are needed to protect the environmental sensitivity of the area,” said Ryan O’Sullivan, Infrastructure Delivery Design Technician for the City of Kelowna. “A roundabout will improve the efficiency of this high-volume intersection and the safety of interactions between cyclists, pedestrians and motorists.”
The $1 million project improvements will include a roundabout with curb, gutter and sidewalks, a new bus pullout, watermain upgrades and a culvert replacement at Brandt’s Creek. The project is anticipated for completion by the end of September.
The #7 Glenmore bus will be detoured with stops closed on Valley at Cross roads and on Kane Road. For rider information, visit bctransit.com/kelowna.
