KAMLOOPS – One down, four to go, as the season for roadwork winds down in Kamloops.
The Columbia Street project is officially complete and the remaining city construction projects are fast drawing to a close.
Crews continue to work on the east side of the bridge and will be removing west side scaffolding at night.
All southbound passenger vehicles traveling to downtown will continue to detour through the temporary bypass off the southwest ramp. All southbound heavy trucks must detour through Mission Flats or travel up Summit Drive.
The webcam feed at the south end of the bridge may be down intermittently due to electrical work taking place in the area.
12th Street reconstruction
Crews will be paving driveways and working on boulevard restoration, as well as grouting manholes and catch basins.
All roads are now open but maybe down to single lane, alternating traffic when work is being completed in the roadway.
Van Horne Drive to Pacific Way has been paved with the intersections to be completed Tuesday, Oct. 13.
Curb and gutter repairs will continue on Van Horne Drive to Highway 5A into next week ending with paving Friday, Oct. 16.
Work on the left turn bay at the intersection of Aberdeen Drive and Van Horne Drive is tentatively scheduled to start next week.
Construction will take place between Monday and Saturday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. with the possibility of night work.
Access may be temporarily limited near O’Connor Drive and various properties along Dallas Drive and gravel roadways will be in place throughout the week.
Motorists can expect single lane, alternating traffic between 7 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
