West Kelowna restarting major road work in Glenrosa

Glenrosa road work is back

The City of West Kelowna says it is about to restart road, sidewalk and infrastructure upgrade work on Glenrosa and McIver Roads.

Phase two of the project starts March 8 and will require road closures and detours for up to 12 weeks.

Crews will close Glenrosa Road from Morningside to Webber and McIver Road from Glenrosa to McTaggart. Glenrosa Road traffic will detour via Yorkton Road and Morningside Drive. The city suggests that McIver Road residents detour via McTaggart, Gorman and Webber Roads.

Motorists are asked to follow the 30km/h speed limits along all detour routes and in and around work zones in respect of crews and their neighbours.

In an effort to mitigate other traffic concerns during construction, the City of West Kelowna says it will re-open both lanes most weekends.

It also will open the southbound lane of Glenrosa (between Morningside and Webber) after-hours weekdays, but require northbound traffic to continue to use the detour at all times from Monday to Friday.

Other steps to mitigate traffic issues during construction include:

  • Close Yorkton north of Morningside will be closed to thru traffic and block off Larsen at Yorkton
  • Install a temporary three-way stop at Glenrosa/Morningside/Glen Abbey
  • The bus stop on Glenrosa at Morningside will temporarily be removed north of the intersection.
