Roadway Maintenance and Equipment

The Roadway Maintenance and Equipment group is responsible for the construction and maintenance of 1,600 lane kilometres of roadway.

Maintenance of the road network consists of:

Rehabilitation of Existing Infrastructure Works

Existing infrastructure works include roadways, sidewalks, bicycle networks and bridges.

Inspection of these works is done on a regular basis to identify areas that require rehabilitation and to ensure that the facilities perform adequately for their design life-span.

Roadways are monitored by our Pavement Management System. All City roadways are tested on a continual basis for surface condition, roughness and strength. The system identifies and prioritizes roads that require remedial work. To learn more about the future of Kelowna's roadways, check out the 2020 Update Roadway Network Plan.
