Commuters advised to be patient as roadwork in Kamloops continues

Pacific Way and Tranquille Road projects are being tackled this week

The city is reminding motorists to be patient and detour when possible in light of two small utility projects occurring this week.

City utility services supervisor Joe Luison said work began on Sunday to repair a water main on Pacific Way in Aberdeen. It is expected to wrap up on Monday night.

Luison said a hole was discovered in the main line on Pacific Way when the city went to hook up service to a new commercial development at the northwest corner of Pacific Way and Hugh Allan Drive.

Until the job is finished, Pacific Way’s northbound lanes across the Highway 1 overpass are closed and will remain so until 8 p.m. on Monday.

Drivers are asked to obey signs.

“When in the area, take care, be patient,” Luison said. “If at all possible, detour a different route.”

Utility work — adding water and sewer services to a section of the road — in Brocklehurst, on Tranquille Road between Windbreak and Schreiner streets, will continue daily through Friday, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

Luison said the work is the result of development in the area. The city is responsible for providing utility services and developers are responsible for hookups. Only local traffic will only be allowed in the area and temporary bus stops have been set up as along Tranquille Road, Windbreak Street and Young Avenue.

Meanwhile. reconstruction of West Victoria Street downtown continues, with congestion, particularly during rush hour in the morning and evening, to be expected. In Barnhartvale, work continues on Todd Road.
