Road paving complete in Lumby area

Projects include 17 kilometres of Highway 6 between Ricardo Road in Coldstream and Lumby

Nearly 75 kilometres of roads are now repaved in the Coldstream and Lumby area.

Resurfacing is now complete on the following sections:

17 kilometres of Highway 6 between Ricardo Road in Coldstream and Lumby;

26 kilometres of Highway 6 intermittently from the base of Mine Hill to Gibson Road;

32 kilometres of Mabel Lake Road, from the Lumby municipal boundary to the end of the existing pavement.

“I’d like to thank local residents in the area for their patience during construction,” said Eric Foster, Vernon-Monashee MLA.

“Highway 6 is an important link between the North Okanagan and the West Kootenay, and travellers will now enjoy a safer and more reliable  commute, while users of Mabel Lake Provincial Park will appreciate the resurfacing of Mabel Lake Road, which is the main access to the park.”
