27 Street repairs and repaving

Crews will be repairing 27 Street between 43 and 58 Avenue starting May 16. These base repairs are necessary before repaving to increase the lifespan of the road. Repairs are expected to take approximately five weeks to complete. Repaving is scheduled for the end of September to avoid high volumes of tourist traffic.

Crack sealing

The City of Vernon crack sealing program is in progress. Crack sealing extends the life of pavement by reducing water penetration. The program will run four to six weeks.

Line painting

The City of Vernon line painting program is currently in progress. Line painting is split into two tasks: curbs and symbols (crosswalks, stop bars), and long line (centre line, fog line). The program will run five to six weeks and contractors will be working through the evening and early morning hours until completion.

Although every reasonable effort will be made to minimize the disruption to traffic during these projects, motorists should be prepared for minor delays. Traffic may be reduced to single lane in both directions. We ask that the travelling public to be patient, slow down and obey all traffic control.

The City of Vernon would also like to remind residents to continue to do business locally. Please look for signage directing you to temporary routes to access Vernon businesses during construction.
