Start of complex works along South Main marks final phase of project

NEWS RELEASE

Motorists and residents in the area of South Main will face one final period of busy construction as work gets underway to install water and sewer mains and service pipelines, along with prep work for final paving by the end of November.

Individuals passing through or living in the impacted areas around South Main should expect to see traffic restricted to alternating one-way passage in the vicinity of the Skaha Lake Marina entrance from Wednesday November 13 to Friday November 15 inclusive.  Further restrictions may occur to address unpredictable ground conditions and will be communicated if they arise.

“We thank motorists and residents for their past and continued patience as we enter into this final and busiest leg of the project,” said the City’s Engineer, Ian Chapman.  “While the congestion that will be created during this final leg of work is unavoidable, the City will collaborate with all of the involved construction parties to ensure there is a coordinated and effective approach to keep traffic moving with the least possible disruption.”
