More road details provided

The City of Vernon is providing more details on the Kalamalka Lake Road project.

The planned closure of Kalamalka Lake Road between Browne Road and the Coldstream boundary (phase two) has been deferred to late spring 2018.

“Current work on phase one is expected to be wrapped up by the end of August. The full project was originally scheduled to be complete by late October,” said Tanya Laing Gahr, communications officer.

In order to complete phase two of the project, B.C. Hydro poles need to be relocated along Kalamalka Lake Road. Work on the project was delayed when B.C. Hydro crews responded to the wildfire emergency in the province.

“Crews from BC Hydro will continue to relocate poles in preparation for the next phase of construction in the spring,” said Laing Gahr.

The city expects substantial completion of phase one of the Kalamalka Lake Road project by mid-August, and pole relocation completion by mid-September.

‘Minimal disruption to traffic, including lane closure and possible single-lane alternating traffic, is expected this year,” said Laing Gahr.
