[ARCHIVED] Lowertown Improvements Project

20031 - Revised Lowertown Traffic Management Sketch

The Lower Town project will take place this summer in the vicinity of Okanagan College and the new splash pad in Farwell Park (First St. West, Second St. and Benson St.). Construction is set to commence the week of June 1st, 2020.

Work will include the reconstruction of four city blocks (curb, gutter, sidewalk and streetlights) and replacement of aging water and sanitary sewer mains plus new storm drainage.

The project has been awarded to Jake-Jay Construction Ltd. in the amount of $1,366,764.00.

During construction there will be heavy equipment and dump-trucks travelling to and from the work site, please use caution when travelling near these areas. When required, there will be detours around the work site. 

Please obey signs and follow direction of traffic control persons. Parking within the construction areas will not be permitted throughout completion of the project. The parking lot at OK College/Daycare will be accessible from 2nd Street for the most part, occasionally users may have to walk in from 1st Street, 2nd street, or the empty lot on Wright Street. 

If the splash park re-opens, we will revise the plan to show parking areas for users of the park. Pedestrian and bike access to the park and OK College/Daycare will always be available during construction. 

There will be planned interruptions to the supply of water and sanitary services. Residents will be informed in advance of any planned interruptions and we will make every effort to minimize the duration of any such event.

During construction, every effort will be made to minimize inconvenience to area businesses and residents. 

Thank you in advance for your patience while this necessary work is carried out.
