Road work starts around airport

North Okanagan residents heading to the Kelowna International Airport should be aware of road construction.

Repaving and utility upgrades began along Airport Way, between Old Vernon Road and Aerospace Drive, Monday.

At the same time, a multi-use pathway will be added which will include landscaping, trees, sidewalks, bus shelters and street lights.

In addition, benches will be added for those who enjoy coming out to the airport to observe the landings and takeoffs of various aircraft that frequent YLW.

Vehicles arriving to the airport from the North Okanagan are encouraged to use the main entrance at the lights.

Traffic off Old Vernon Road along Airport Way may experience slight delays.
