Shannon Lake Road to be upgraded as part of development

Road work in Shannon Lake

Drivers in West Kelowna are being advised of construction taking place on Shannon Lake Road, starting Tuesday.

A contractor is starting work on installing water main infrastructure, sidewalks, streetlights and landscaping on the section of Shannon Lake Road south of Tallus Ridge Drive.

The work is part of the West 61 townhouse development on the northwest shore of Shannon Lake.

Brantal Contracting Ltd. crews are scheduled to perform work from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. weekdays until early fall.

Shannon Lake Road will remain open during construction, but there will be traffic controls in place, including reduced speed zones, sections of single-lane alternating traffic, and limited street parking along the construction route. The city is working closely with the contractor to keep traffic flowing during peak periods.

Outside of construction hours, the road will be open to thru traffic and work will not be scheduled on long weekends or holidays. Transit and access for emergency services will be maintained during construction.

Motorists are advised to allow for extra travel time when driving through this area. For the safety of crews and residents in the area, please follow all construction signage and instructions from traffic control personnel.
