A public information session next Tuesday will give information about plans to re-align the Rose Avenue and Richter Street intersection. At the same time other utility upgrades will be done in the area.
The information session will be from 4:30 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, June 16, at Cameron Park, 2345 Richter St. City of Kelowna staff will address project details and construction impacts.
This session is family-friendly and some children’s games will be available.
Construction is anticipated to begin in early July and will be completed in phases. Weather permitting, final paving and restorations will be done in November; however some finishing work may have to wait until next spring.
Improvements at the Rose and Richter intersection will include traffic signals, sidewalks, curb and gutter.
Some parking spots on Rose Avenue will be removed to accommodate the realignment. Bike lanes will be added along Rose, from Pandosy Street to Gordon Drive, by paving and painting bike lanes along the edge of the existing roadway, which may reduce the width of the gravel shoulders on some frontages.
Construction will be carried out from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday, and the road within the active construction zones will be closed during work hours.
Some vehicle access and parking will be restored as much as possible at the end of each work day, but vehicles parked on the gravel shoulders within the active construction area must be removed by 7 a.m. on work days.
