Richmond Avenue Reopens

Kamloops, B.C. – The City is pleased to announce that the upgrade work on Richmond Avenue is substantially complete. The project, which started in July, consisted of:

  • New water main tie-ins;
  • Storm sewer catch basins and sanitary sewers;
  • New street lighting;
  • Road reconstruction;
  • Sidewalk on the north side and curb and gutter on the south side; and
  • Driveway and boulevard restoration.

Richmond Avenue is now reopened to traffic. There may continue to be periods of single-lane alternating traffic during the next three weeks to accommodate minor restoration work.

The project was completed on time and under budget, thanks to the solid efforts and hard work of the contractor and City staff.
