Traffic Advisory

The new multi-use path bridge on Lakeshore Road over Bellevue Creek will be fully operational to motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians this weekend.    

The project was completed to extend the life of the existing bridge and enhance the safety for people walking, biking, and driving by widening the Lakeshore Road Bridge at Bellevue Creek. “Two lanes of vehicle traffic with buffered bike lanes in each direction, and this multi-use path will allow for smoother traffic flow in the area,” says Todd DeGruchy, project manager, City of Kelowna.  

The City appreciates the patience and cooperation of residents and local businesses during construction.  

The improved bridge connects the multi-use path from the Lakeshore Active Transportation Corridor to the commercial centres and Collett Road roundabout. Construction was staged to ensure continued traffic flow throughout the project. Work included watermain upgrades, drainage and road improvements, decorative streetlighting, a new sidewalk landscaping and creek bed reinforcement.
