Construction set for Longacre/Apollo area

New sections of water mains and services will be installed on Longacre and Apollo roads five days a week.

The City of Vernon is advising residents of utility work in an Okanagan Landing neighbourhood.

Starting Tuesday (today) and until the end of September, new sections of water mains and services will be installed on Longacre and Apollo roads five days a week.

“This will require closures of sections of the roads for the construction. The main road affected will be Apollo, on the upper side of Longacre, with a section in the middle of Apollo remaining untouched. Longacre from Okanagan Avenue to just past Apollo will also be disturbed,” states a letter from the contractor to residents.

“Local traffic will be maintained, although your access may be restricted to one end or the other of your street. The affected roads will have barricades and signage. If possible, please access the area from the Apollo Road/Okanagan Landing Roa. intersection.”
