Construction is likely to begin this spring to improve safety and traffic flows in and around the intersection of Skaha Lake Road and South Main Street, where large volumes of traffic converge. The Point Intersection is the name given to this busy section of roads that include Kinney Avenue, Skaha Lake Road, South Main Street, Main Street and Dawson Avenue.
City Council approved a plan in 2019 for the construction improvements, which focus on a significant upgrade of Galt Avenue and its intersections with Skaha Lake Road and South Main Street, while closing the Kinney Avenue link to traffic.
While construction is underway, motorists should expect delay and traffic flow changes. Watch for updates on this page as the project progresses.
