PROJECT SCOPE

The City of Kamloops has contracted Extreme Excavating Ltd to carry out upgrades along Lorne Street between Mt Paul Way and 10th Avenue. We are advising residents in the area that this work is scheduled to begin May 9, weather depending, and includes the following work:

  • installation of a new water main;
  • twinning of existing sanitary forcemain;
  • surface improvements including a sidewalk and new asphalt;
  • installation of barrier curb and gutter; and
  • pavement markings.

TRAFFIC IMPACTS

Lorne Street between 7th Avenue and 10th Avenue will be closed with the exception of local traffic. Between Mt Paul Way and 8th Avenue, expect intermittent closures and/or single lane traffic.

The intersection of Lorne Street and 10th Avenue will be reduced to one lane in each direction during resurfacing work. 

Access to Pioneer Park, the boat launch and the Tennis Club will be maintained.

Please obey all traffic control personnel and signage when driving in the vicinity of the construction.

RESIDENT IMPACTS

Throughout the construction period, vibratory compaction equipment will be in use; therefore, any fragile items should be packaged or protected from damage due to vibration. There may also be noise disruption due to equipment on site. Garbage collection will not be affected.

HOURS OF WORK

Work will begin on May 9 and is expected to be complete by the end of September. Construction is scheduled to occur Monday–Friday, 7:00 am–5:00 pm. Some evening or weekend work may be required.
