Okanagan Lake Waterfront Construction Update

The contractor, Greyback, plans to proceed with works for the walkway west of Power Street towards the SS Sicamous starting in October (next week!).

Greyback's schedule is to install the required safety fencing along the edge of the westbound (lakeside) lane which will eliminate the on-street angle parking on Tuesday October 1st. Greyback will proceed with removals and preparatory work on Wednesday October 2nd and commence footing excavation Thursday October 3rd. Construction crews will be commencing wall footing and wall construction west of Power Street in the week commencing October 7th.

The public will also see installation of the remaining walls and commencement of the walkway slabs, irrigation system, street lighting, garbage receptacles and concrete curb & gutter in the section east of Power Street next week.

Two-way traffic flow will be maintained throughout this project period other than for minimal disruptions to allow for passage of construction equipment.

Greyback has confirmed their intention to complete the project in November subject to any unanticipated delays.
