PROJECT SCOPE

The City of Kamloops will be completing drainage works along Parkview Drive. This work will begin in January 2024 and will include:

  • Drainage control measures along Westsyde Road (including additional catch basins and concrete barriers) to redirect storm runoff away from the Oak Dale Mobile Home Park.
  • Drainage improvements along Parkview Drive including storm piping extensions from drainage channels, additional catch basins, improved ditching and driveway crossing culverts, some driveway drainage curb, and new storm inlet structures.

TRAFFIC IMPACTS

Please watch for signage and obey all traffic control personnel and equipment when driving or walking near the project site. At times, traffic on Parkview Drive will be reduced to single lane.

RESIDENT IMPACTS

Throughout the project, vibratory compaction equipment may be in use; therefore, any fragile items should be packaged or protected from damage due to vibration.

There may be noise disruption due to equipment on site.

Every attempt will be made to minimize the impact on residents, motorists, and pedestrians during construction; however, travel delays are inevitable.

HOURS OF WORK

Hours of work are from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday to Thursday, with the possibility of weekend work.

PROJECT SCOPE

The City of Kamloops has contracted Extreme Excavating to remove, reconfigure, and reconstruct the existing Riverside Park grit chamber* into a controlled diversion chamber to allow for safe cleaning and improved operation. We are advising residents and parkgoers that this work is scheduled to begin at the end of October, with completion expected in early 2024.

*A grit chamber is a long, narrow tank designed to reduce the velocity of the flow of sewage to eliminate materials like sand, eggshells, coffee grounds, and other inorganic materials.

PARK IMPACTS

While there will be very little impact to parkgoers, the area of work will be cordoned off and closed to the public. Please obey all signage and personnel.

HOURS OF WORK

Construction is scheduled to occur Monday–Friday, 7:00 am–5:00 pm. Some evening or weekend work may be required.

PROJECT UPDATE:

Throughout the winter, glass niches for cremated remains will be installed, as well as the addition of various stone, marble, and stained glass elements.


PROJECT SCOPE

The City of Kamloops has contracted Chandos Construction to design and construct a new Mausoleum at Hillside Cemetery to meet the forecasted demand for additional crypts and niches. The project is ongoing and slated for completion in early 2024.

The new building will be approximately 4600 sq. ft. and will be connected to the existing building.

PROJECT UPDATE:

Abatement was successfully completed, but the deconstruction schedule will be delayed to early 2024.


Late March–September 2023

PROJECT SCOPE

The City of Kamloops has contracted Clearview Demolition Ltd. to tear down the former Northbridge Hotel at 377 Tranquille Road. We are advising residents, businesses and commuters that this work is scheduled to begin in late March and will encompass the following scope of work:

  • abatement; and
  • deconstruction.

TRAFFIC IMPACTS

Traffic detours may be in effect and transit may be impacted. Please obey all traffic control personnel and equipment when driving in the vicinity of the project.

RESIDENT AND BUSINESS IMPACTS

Fences are expected to go up around the property in late March. For the first four months all work will be contained on site. Security will remain on premises to ensure no one enters the building during the abatement process. This building contains hazardous materials, such as asbestos, and while this work poses no health risk to anyone outside the building, proper precautions need to be taken inside. The contractor will erect fences to delineate their work zone and is important that the public respects that boundary.

Throughout the construction period, vibratory compaction equipment may be in use; therefore, any fragile items should be packaged or protected from damage due to vibration. There may also be noise disruption due to equipment on site.

Garbage collection will not be affected

HOURS OF WORK

Work will begin late March, with completion anticipated for the end of September. Construction is scheduled to occur Monday through Saturday, 7:00 am–5:00 pm.
