City Seeking Input on Peterson Creek Multi-use Pathway Project

Kamloops, B.C. – Biking and walking between Sahali and downtown will soon get much easier. The City plans to construct the first phase of the Peterson Creek Multi-use Pathway to connect Summit Drive (near Sa-Hali Secondary School) to downtown (near Glenfair Drive). This three-meter wide, 1.7 km long, paved multi-use pathway will provide walkers and cyclists with a safe and direct link between Sahali and downtown. The pathway will include lighting, signage, rest areas with benches, and other amenities.

The City is looking for feedback from residents and stakeholder groups. Join City staff and project consultants for an open house to view the project plans and provide input on project design elements.

A survey is also available to gather input between November 2 and 16. Complete it online at www.kamloops.ca/letstalk.

The City’s Pedestrian, Bicycle, and Trails Master Plans all identify the Peterson Creek Multi-use Pathway as a key connection within the City's active transportation network. Since these plans were developed, the City has been working to complete the preliminary design of the first phase of the project and to confirm funding sources. Detailed design of the project is currently underway.

After the November 23 open house, City staff will follow up with key stakeholder groups to further discuss the project. Prior to construction, the City will present the final project design at a second public open house.
