Leckie Rd closed at Highway 97 until the end of August

Leckie closed at Hwy 97

Leckie Rd. will be closed overnight to vehicle access on both sides of Highway 97 until the end of the month during construction to accommodate traffic signal works and continuing intersection improvement in the area.

During the work, there will also be lane closures on Highway 97 at Leckie Rd. from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. until the end of the month.

The project is a collaboration between the City of Kelowna and the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure and the Costco Development.

Some of the improvements include a dual left turn lane from Highway 97 southbound onto Leckie Rd. to add southbound capacity, and a smart right turn lane to increase safety for northbound right turns from Leckie Rd. onto the highway across from the bike path extension.

The path is being extended from Leckie Rd. to Highway 97, linking it all the way through to the Greenway.

Motorists, cyclists and pedestrians are advised to use caution and follow all posted signage. There will be increased heavy truck traffic and equipment working near the intersection.
