Motorists traveling down Middleton Way are being asked to slow down and watch for construction crews, as work begins on a multi-use path between Kosmina Road and Highway 6.
Starting Thursday, Sept. 3, northbound traffic will be slightly re-routed to use the centre turning lane to get around the construction zone. The northbound lane will be closed in three separate phases as follows:
- 100m south of Kosmina Road to Kosmina Road
- Kosmina Road to Sarsons Road
- Sarsons Road to Highway 6
“The project, which will improve travel opportunities for cyclists and pedestrians, includes construction of a path, ditching and grading, installation of new manholes and the installation of concrete barriers and flexible delineators to separate the pedestrian/cyclist multi-use path from vehicles,” the city of Vernon said.
Construction is expected to be completed by Nov. 15.
“The City appreciates everyone’s patience and reminds users of the roadways to obey all traffic control signs and to slow down in work zones.”
