Minor detour starting Monday, July 20, as work begins on 35th Avenue near Powerhouse Theatre

A minor detour will be required next week for a Vernon construction project on 35th Avenue near Vernon Fire Rescue Services’ Fire Station #1 and the Powerhouse Theatre.

The work is being done in conjunction with Canadian National Railway (CN), and will begin Monday, July 20. The road is expected to be reopened to traffic by the end of next week.

Access to 29th Street and 28th Street (on either side of the rail line) will be maintained for local traffic.

The project includes the installation of new concrete railway crossing pads and subsequent maintenance to the road, multi-use path and sidewalk.

Traffic control will be in place during construction. For the safety of workers and the public, please follow all traffic control measures and allow extra time to detour around the construction area.

The city appreciates everyone’s patience while this project is completed.
