A bit more traffic will be permitted along Tranquille Road

On Oct. 17, the road will be partially reopened to traffic as crews continue working on Phase2 of the $13-million sanitary sewer upgrade project.

As of Saturday, Oct. 17, Tranquille Road will be partially reopened to traffic — one lane in each direction — between Southill Street and Holt Street as the $11-million sanitary sewer upgrade project continues.

The intersections of Desmond Street/Tranquille Road and Holt Street/Tranquille Road will be reopened as all-way stops, with traffic signals flashing red. Landscape restoration and electrical work will continue throughout that section of Tranquille Road and drivers are reminded that the posted 30 km/hr speed limit remains in effect 24 hours a day.

Beginning on Oct. 17, transit buses will be back on Tranquille Road through the construction zone from Southill Street to Nicolani Drive and most bus stops will be reopened. Transit riders should check NextRide.Kamloops.BCTransit.com or refer to the transit map on LetsTalk.kamloops.ca/Tranquille.

To accommodate sanitary sewer work, Tranquille Road between Singh Street and Cambridge Court will be closed to all traffic except people with driveways that access that section of Tranquille Road, emergency services vehicles and transit. Traffic detours will be in place.

The dangerous goods route remains temporarily rerouted to Ord Road until further notice.

Traffic webcams are in place on Tranquille Road at Desmond Street, at Southill Street and at Holt Street. All traffic and transit detour maps and webcams can be viewed at LetsTalk.Kamloops.ca/Tranquille.

The second phase of the Tranquille Road sanitary main upgrade project involves replacing the sanitary gravity main along Tranquille Road from Southill Street to 12th Street and upgrades along the corridor, including pedestrian paths, landscaping and intersection and boulevard improvements. The project was originally slated to start in March of this year, but it was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The project started in May 2020 and is expected to be finished in the fall of 2021.
