KAMLOOPS - Several construction projects are taking place throughout Kamloops this week.

Starting today, Aug. 22, Hugh Allan Drive in Pineview will be receiving a new sidewalk from 1920 Hugh Allan Dr. to Lodgepole Drive.

Bus riders should be aware the bus stop on the north side of the street will be temporarily relocated, according to a City of Kamloops media release. The construction in this area will continue until September.

Tomorrow, Aug. 23, concrete deck repairs will begin on the 8 Street overpass at Halston Avenue, the city says. This construction project will continue until Aug. 30 and the work will mainly take place between 7 p.m. to 6 a.m., but some traffic may be impacted during the day.

In Westsyde, Bank Road will receive pedestrian upgrades along the west side of the street from Jensen Road to Stansfield Road. City staff says the work will continue up until the early fall. No traffic impacts are expected but people who use the River Trail are asked to use caution along this area of the trail. Construction for this project will begin Friday, Aug. 24.

The total value for the Bank Road and Hugh Allan Drive projects is $210,000 and is being carried out by KLL Construction Ltd.

The city is asking motorists to use caution in areas where construction is taking place and comply with traffic control personnel and signage.
