Annual program paves the way for better roads

March 2, 2018

The City of Kelowna's 2018 pavement management program has begun. Approximately 40 lane kilometres will be re-surfaced this year, involving 16 different road segments.

“As in previous year’s we’ll see some of the work, like on Ellis and Acland roads, completed in conjunction with other projects like painting new bike lanes,” said Darin Thompson, Roadways Construction.  “Other sections, like the end of Beaver Lake Road and the end of Lakeshore Road, are identified and prioritized through our pavement management program which continually tests all city roadways to identify routes that need remedial work.”

Short-term lane closures or detours will be in effect on sections where work is in progress. For the purpose of public safety and quality control, traffic control personnel will be directing motorists and local residents to stay off the newly treated road segments until they have sufficiently cured. The public's cooperation and patience will be appreciated.

City of Kelowna personnel have already begun preparing the selected road segments by cleaning, sweeping, sealing cracks, flushing and completing some minor shoulder repairs. Residents will be notified when resurfacing work is to begin in their area.

Approximately $3.5 million will be invested in asphalt improvements this year with the work expected to be complete by October. This annual program provides cost efficiencies and helps protect the infrastructure of our roads over time to prevent mass replacement at one time.
