Project Scope

The City of Kamloops will be conducting utility and road works as well as pedestrian upgrades on Westmount Drive between Westsyde Road and Collingwood Drive. We are advising residents in the area that this work is scheduled to begin April 6 and will encompass the following scope of work:

  • water service replacements;
  • drainage upgrades;
  • sanitary upgrades;
  • pedestrian walkway; and
  • road reconstruction.

Traffic Impacts

Westmount Drive will be closed for the duration of the project with the exception of local traffic. Please obey all traffic control personnel and equipment when driving in the vicinity of the construction.

Resident Impacts

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.

Garbage collection will not be affected.

In conjunction with the utility upgrades commencing on the above-noted project, there will be frequent water interruptions. Expect intermittent water shutdowns of three hours or less during this portion of the project. When possible we will inform residents daily of longer duration water shutdowns in excess of three hours. We recommend that residents store a quantity of water for use during the longer duration periods.

Driveway access to residents may be temporarily restricted during construction. Residents are advised that off-street parking may not be accessible at times during construction and to plan ahead by moving vehicles to adjacent streets before work commences Monday to Friday. On-street parking is not permitted during working hours on weekdays.

Hours of Work

Work will begin April 6, depending on weather conditions, and is expected to be complete mid-July. Construction is scheduled to occur Monday–Friday, 8:00 am–4:00 pm until May 21, and 7:00 am–3:00 pm from May 25 until the end of the project. Some evening work may be required.
