KELOWNA - The wavy new roof gracing the Queensway transit exchange has caught the eye of the people who judge such things and been recognized with an award.

The Council of Southern Interior Construction Association gave the transit exchange an award of excellence in the category of community institutional construction.

The design of the wood canopy is supposed to signify Kelowna’s association with Okanagan Lake and the lumber industry.

Upgraded as part of the rapid bus transit project, Queensway got its new roof during a retrofit beginning last year and finished this spring.

Sidewalks from Pandosy Street and Water Street were also improved.
