Columbia Park School Safety Detour - July

Airport Way Watermain Extension - September 27th to October 31st

The City of Revelstoke and the Columbia Shuswap Regional District have entered into an agreement to extend the City watermain from Williamson Lake Road to the Revelstoke Airport. This is to facilitate the expansion of the BC Wildfire Service, Ministry of Forests Fire Base at the Revelstoke Airport. 

Construction work will be completed by Jake-Jay Construction Ltd. 

Expect equipment noise and increased numbers of construction vehicles. Single lane alternating traffic (SLAT) will be clearly marked with traffic cones and traffic control persons when required. Please drive cautiously and protect our cone zone workers.

Notices were issued to affected residents on Tuesday September 26th. A copy of this notice can be viewed here.

Water Lining Project - 5th St to Pratico Rd

The purpose of this project is to rehabilitate two sections of water line that have been identified as requiring repair and maintenance or reaching their end of life. These two sections of watermain were identified as suitable candidates for a trenchless watermain rehabilitation pilot project. A ‘Spray-in-Place-Pipe’ (SIPP) lining method will be used to rehabilitate and return the pipe to service, rather than replacing the full length of pipe. Construction work will be completed by General Assembly.  

This work is being piloted in two locations:

  • 5th Street from Mackenzie Ave to McArthur Ave - October 10th to 19th 
  • Pratico Road (west of Airport Way) - October 12th to 19th

There will be water service shutdowns and interruptions during construction. Sections of road will require closures throughout the construction period. Notices will be delivered to impacted residents a minimum of 48 hours prior to planned shutdowns or road closures. Expect equipment noise and increased numbers of construction vehicles. Road closures and detours will be clearly marked with traffic cones, and traffic control persons when required. Please follow all detour routes, drive cautiously, and protect our cone zone workers. 

You can view a map showing the expected road closures below.

Background: In 2022 a comprehensive Water Master Plan was completed by WSP, identifying the current condition of the City's water supply network, and identifying upgrades necessary to align with the anticipated growth identified in the Official Community Plan.
