Project Scope

The City of Kamloops has contracted BA Dawson Blacktop Ltd. to construct a new sidewalk and undertake asphalt improvements on Chestnut Avenue between the Fortune Drive frontage road and Schubert Drive. The project includes:

  • installation of curb and gutter
  • installation of a new sidewalk
  • addition of a crosswalk on the west end 
  • minor storm works and replacement of catch basins
  • repaving and pavement markings

Traffic Impacts

Chestnut Avenue will be closed to vehicles with the exception of local traffic. School dropoffs are recommended via Schubert Drive. 

Resident Impacts

Residential garbage collection will not be affected. To minimize any impact to residential garbage collection, please have your containers out by 7:00 am.

Throughout the construction period, vibratory compaction equipment may 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. 

Resident and Pedestrian Access

Access for residents and pedestrians will be maintained throughout the project.

Hours of Work

Work will begin on September 28, 2020 and is expected to be complete by October 31, 2020. Hours of work are 7:00 am-5:00 pm, Monday–Saturday.
