Vernon motorists are reminded to think of local businesses as roads are ripped up.

Five major construction projects are currently underway in the community.

“All businesses in the area will remain open and can be easily accessed,” said Tanya Laing Gahr, the city’s communications officer.

“Detour routes will be modified as construction progresses. Residents are encouraged to continue supporting local businesses.”

The current projects have the following traffic disruptions:

* 30th Street is closed from 30th Avenue to 32nd Avenue and is scheduled to open in late August.

* 35th Street is closed from 28th Avenue to 30th Avenue for road and utility upgrades. Construction will take place until late September.

35th Avenue is closed from 24th Street to 27th Street for road and utility upgrades. Construction will take place until mid-September.

* Two-way traffic on Kalamalka Lake Road will be maintained with intermittent periods of single-lane alternating traffic.
