WEST KELOWNA – The section of Elliott Road between Main Street and Dobbin will reopen to vehicle and pedestrian traffic Monday after being closed for more than seven months for construction of a new transit exchange.

Construction of the Westbank RapidBus transit exchange won't be completed until the end of the month and motorists are asked to obey traffic control instructions during the final stage of completion.

As part of the $44.5 million Kelowna RapidBus project designed to improve service, the Westbank exchange joins the Boucherie Mountain transit exchange already completed earlier this year.

The RapidBus service wlll feature exchanges at Okanagan College, Rutland, Queensway, South Pandosy, Boucherie Mountain and Westbank Centre and is scheduled to come online early 2015.

The project is the result of a partnership between Transport Canada, The B.C. Ministry of Transportation, City of Kelowna, District of West Kelowna, Westbank First Nation and B.C. Transit.
