A major road project will have Enderby motorists pursuing new routes.

Construction on Salmon Arm Drive begins Monday.

“Phase one is from West Enderby Road to Northern Avenue,” said Tate Bengtson, chief administrative officer.

“Phase one road works will be completed in mid to late October, with work on a retaining wall extending into November.”

During phase one construction, Salmon Arm Drive will be closed to through traffic between Northern Street and West Enderby Road.

Local access will be maintained, as well as access for emergency vehicles, school buses and garbage and recycling trucks. A detour will be provided for through traffic via Northern Avenue and Northern Street.

The 900-metre project will renew the road base and water, sewer, and storm utilities.

“There will also be improvements to walkability and safety, including new street lights, a second raised crosswalk near the western access to the raised multi-use path, and a sidewalk for that part of Salmon Arm Drive located between the accesses to the raised multi-use path,” said Bengtson.

“Salmon Arm Drive is a significant residential collector road that accepts traffic from much of the northwestern area of Enderby.”

Phase two will start in the spring.
