Upcoming road construction in Vernon and Coldstream will affect traffic in the area for upwards of three weeks.
Repaving work will temporarily interrupt traffic flow on portions of Husband Road, Mt. Thor Drive, Mt. York Drive and Middleton Road from Oct. 11-31 on Middleton Mountain.
In Vernon, a detour will be required for a portion of Okanagan Landing and Tronson roads for the next few weeks while crews upgrade sewer utilities.
Starting as early as 7 a.m. on Tuesday (Oct. 11), a partial closure, temporarily restricting left turns, will be in effect for the intersection of Okanagan Landing and Tronson roads. The work is expected to take two weeks to complete but timelines may change if emergencies arise.
In Coldstream, the paving work will reduce traffic to one land and/or temporarily be closed during the project. Drivers are asked to use alternative routes and obey all signage and on-site personnel.
Access to area businesses will remain open and residents are encouraged to continue supporting local businesses.
Motorists should watch for adjusted travel routes and expect short delays, and are reminded to slow down in construction zones and obey all traffic control measures.
