A major reconstruction project will partially close 32nd Avenue, starting next week.
Replacement of road, sidewalk, water main, storm sewer, and sanitary sewers takes place between Pleasant Valley Road and 20th Street.
Construction will begin as early as Monday, July 10, and is expected to continue until fall 2023. The road will be accessible to local traffic only during construction. Detour routes will be available to the north and south on 37th Avenue and 25th Avenue.
“Access to area businesses will remain open and residents are encouraged to continue supporting local businesses,” the City of Vernon said.
“Please slow down if traveling in the area and obey all traffic control signage. The city apologizes for any inconvenience this road closure may cause, and appreciates everyone’s patience while this major infrastructure project is being completed.”
The project is part of city council’s commitment to replacing aged infrastructure that is the foundation of the services the city provides.
Funding for the project is provided, in part, by the Government of Canada, through the Federal Gas Tax Fund.
