FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 11, 2017
Traffic will be moving again over Shannon Lake Road Bridge as of 8 a.m. Thursday, October 12, as the City of West Kelowna’s largest infrastructure project of 2017 comes to an end.
The $1.55 million project included:
- Diversion and habitat protection of McDougall Creek
- Road realignment
- Sidewalk installation
- Complete bridge replacement
- Environmental monitoring
- Safety and materials testing and inspection
- Habitat restoration
The new bridge was built to replace a decades old structure that could not accommodate heavier traffic like fire trucks. The new structure is designed to last 70-plus years.
The City of West Kelowna would like to thank the public for their patience during the closure.
