Traffic on Bernard Avenue will be unaffected by work in Kerry Park, that’s the latest news from the city of Kelowna as construction takes place to improve storm drainage.
A safety barrier has been erected in the park to partition the area while work is underway, and the sidewalk along the park on Bernard Ave. will be closed.
Two-lane traffic is expected to remain on Bernard as ground conditions permit, with intermittent interruptions as machinery crosses the road.
Westcorp Properties Inc. will also begin work on the new public pier and marina next week with the removal of the pilings anchoring the existing commercial dock at Kerry Park – pile driving for the new pier and marina will follow once removals are complete.
Phase 2 of the Bernard Avenue Revitalization between Abbott Street and Pandosy is set to begin in February.
