PENTICTON - Work schedule changes are in the works for revitalization project in downtown Penticton.

Crews will be working between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. from April 1 to April 5 in the 300 block of Main Street.

Downtown Penticton Association executive director Lynn Allin says the night work will allow some noisy and dusty work to be done outside of regular working hours in an effort to reduce inconvenience to the public.

"The night shift will allow the intersection of Wade Avenue and Main Street to stay open during the day. Besides being a busy intersection, it's a major bus route," Allin says, adding a single lane through the intersection will remain open even through the night shift.

Motorists are being asked not to park on the 400 block of Main Street after 6 p.m., and there will be limited vehicle access from Padmore to Wade Avenue during this construction period.

Unseasonably cold weather in February slowed construction down somewhat, but Allin says the project is back on schedule.

The $2.2 million facelift to the 300 block of Main Street began in mid-February and involves new underground infrastructure, street lighting, traffic signals, underground electrical and new asphalt.

The project is expected to be completed by June 15.
