KAMLOOPS – The contruction season continues in full force in Kamloops with two new project added to the list.

All southbound vehicles travelling over the Overlanders Bridge to the downtown continue to be detoured through a temporary bypass off the south west ramp.

All southbound heavy trucks must detour through the Mission Flats intersection or travel up Summit Drive. Traffic control signage and personnel are in place.

Crews continue work on the west sidewalk and side of the bridge deck and south east approach ramp. Traffic may be reduced to short periods of single lane.

The sidewalk on the Fortune Drive overpass has been re-opened. The asphalt ramp connecting Fortune Drive to Tranquille Road remains closed.

Crews continue work on the north side of Columbia Street. West bound traffic is travelling in the north side median lane. East bound traffic is travelling in the south side curb lane.
