Second phase of Penticton’s Lake-to-Lake cycling route to finish in October

Work will now focus on Duncan Avenue between Fairview and Main

The final stage of section two of the current Lake-to-Lake Bike route will soon be underway.

The work is scheduled to be finished by the end of October, and will see the completion of section two of the four sections of the route.

Major roadwork along Atkinson Street is now largely complete, including infrastructure upgrades to improve stormwater management, as well as paving, sidewalks and ramps.

Final touches will include electrical work to improve the lighting, pedestrian crossings and intersection signalization, as well as installing signage, barriers and completing line painting.

Paving will be taking place along Atkinson Street and Kinney Avenue this week, followed by street light installation.

Work is now focused on the stretch of Duncan Avenue between Fairview Road and Main Street. The eastbound lane of Duncan Avenue remains closed to traffic while installing new storm infrastructure, street lighting, traffic signals, conducting paving work and adding new barriers.

Traffic control people are on-site to assist pedestrians and vehicles through the work zone.

The Atkinson Street Bridge also remains closed for the completion of the road construction and traffic safety management.

Residents will be alerted in advance when line painting is set to begin, which will be conducted at night to minimize traffic issues.
