KELOWNA - Beginning Monday, March 20, at 7 a.m. until the end of June, construction will take place along Doyle Avenue from Ellis Street into the intersection at Water Street as part of transportation and utility improvements in the downtown core.
During this time, Doyle Avenue will be open to westbound traffic only and parking will be limited to the north side of the street.
While most construction is scheduled for Monday to Friday, 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., work may occur outside of regular construction hours to minimize impacts on businesses and residents.
Motorists and cyclists are advised to take alternate routes and allow for extra commuting time. Sidewalk improvements will be facilitated to maintain pedestrian access.
Transit route #2 North End will operate via Ellis Street from Queensway Exchange throughout the construction period. Stops on Water Street at Doyle, Cawston and Sunset will be closed. Riders are asked to board at Queensway Exchange or the stop on the east side of Ellis Street just south of Clement Avenue.
The City of Kelowna appreciates the patience of residents, businesses and commuters while construction work is underway.
Businesses adjacent to the construction area will remain open and appreciate your continued patronage.
Improvements to this area include a roundabout at the intersection of Doyle Avenue and Water Street, a watermain replacement on Doyle Avenue between Water and Ellis streets and intersection improvements at Cawston Avenue and Water Street.
