Vernon infrastructure work affects pair of roads

Crews to begin work on Silver Star Road, and Mission Road, between 20th and 21st Avenues, Thursday, Oct. 27

A detour will be required for a portion of Vernon’s Silver Star Road this week while crews complete upgrades to water infrastructure in the area.

Eastbound traffic should not be impacted; however, motorists are reminded to slow down in construction and detour zones and to be prepared for possible travel delays. Every effort will be made to minimize disruptions.

• Also on Thursday, a laneway between Mission Road and 35th Street will be closed for several days while crews complete upgrades to sanitary infrastructure in the area.

Starting at 7:30 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 27, the laneway will be closed to everyone but local traffic. The work is expected to be completed by Nov. 10. Please note, this timeline may change if emergencies arise.
