Notre Dame Drive Road Rehabilitation Project Begins May 12

Kamloops, B.C. - The City of Kamloops has contracted with Dawson Construction to carry out rehabilitation work on Notre Dame Drive between Hillside Drive and Columbia Street. Construction will commence May 12th with anticipated completion by mid-July. 

The project will consist of:

  • Surface milling and paving;
  • Replacement of manhole frames and covers, catch basins, catch basin frame and grates, and castings; and
  • Miscellaneous curb, gutter and sidewalk repairs.

The majority of the work will take place during the week day, with some night work and weekend work also anticipated. Hours of work will be 7:00 am to 4:00 pm in the westbound lanes; 9:00 am to 4:00 pm in the eastbound lanes. Any night work hours will be 7:00 pm to 7:00 am.

A minimum of two lanes of traffic (one each direction) on Notre Dame Drive will be kept open throughout the construction period. Driveway accesses on Notre Dame Drive will be maintained (except for short term closures as milling and paving equipment moves through). Pedestrian traffic will be accommodated during construction with safe walking facilities. Transit service will be maintained.
