Final work on Bernard Ave coming September

The days are numbered for angle parking on Bernard Avenue. The last remaining stalls between Pandosy and St. Paul Street will be replaced by parallel stalls in the final phase of construction starting September.

It's back to business as usual for shop owners along downtown Kelowna's Bernard Avenue this afternoon. After more than three months of non-stop construction the road will open to traffic at 5 p.m. today from Abbott to Pandosy Street.

New features:

- Two lanes with a centre turn lane

- "Sharrows" or shared lane markings for cyclists and motorists

- Parallel parking only

But the $14 million revonation to Kelowna's main drag still has a final phase to go. By Labor Day weekend construction crews will be back to work, rebuilding the street from Pandosy to St. Paul Street. Phase three will kick-off September 3 and is scheduled to be complete by early December.
