Release date: 
October 10, 2019

Kamloops, BC – Earlier this afternoon there was a gas line break in the Victoria Street West construction zone. A Fortis BC crew is currently onsite repairing the break.

While no immediate danger has been identified, as a safety precaution Victoria Street West has been closed to all vehicle and pedestrian traffic from 1st Avenue to the Overlanders Bridge, until further notice. Access to the Overlanders Bridge and the north shore is still accessible from Summit Drive and Mission Flats; however, motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes if possible.

Construction crews continue to work along Victoria Street West this evening in preparation for tomorrow’s paving; however, they are well outside of the gas line break location. The City will provide updates as they become available.
