Dilworth Drive closed at Mill Creek starting Monday
Beginning 9 a.m. Monday, July 16, Dilworth Drive between Omineca Place and Leckie Road will be closed for bridge repairs and works associated for the connection on the Okanagan Rail Trail.
Dilworth Drive is expected to reopen, Friday, Aug. 10.
Detours will be posted and motorists are asked to obey signs and construction safety personnel, as every effort will be made to minimize disruptions. Alternate routes include Glenmore Drive and Summit Drive.
Bridge repairs will include bridge deck replacement with concrete, waterproofing and concrete abutment repairs.
Paving will occur approximately 100 metres north of the rail trail crossing and include new pavement markings, pedestrian/cycle activated signals, storm water quality control structures and management as well as a new sidewalk for improved connectivity to the new rail trail.
Construction is necessary during this time due to provincial regulatory requirements to work near fish bearing streams.
The City of Kelowna thanks residents, businesses and motorists for their patience during this important infrastructure improvement.
