A new walkway is being built along the north breakwater at the Okanagan Centre Safe Harbour Regional Park.
The 53-meter aluminum walkway and associated steel piling infrastructure will be installed in six sections along the 58-meter breakwater on Okanagan Lake. The park and its main boat launch are located on Okanagan Centre Road West in Lake Country.
Construction is slated to begin next week and will be complete by mid-December.
During construction, the boat launch will be available for use, although there could be short, temporary closures while equipment is being positioned.
Earlier this year, the new concrete panel/steel piling breakwater was constructed at the waterfront park, replacing the deteriorating wood structure in place since the mid-90’s.
During the walkway installation, park users, boaters and other visitors are asked to be aware of construction activities for their safety and that of workers.
