Road closures will be in effect on Clapperton Road just east of the Ambulance Station, at Mulberry Avenue, and at Wilson Street. This section of Clapperton Road will be reduced to local traffic only. Detours will be in effect. Motorists and pedestrians are asked to watch for signage and to obey all traffic control personnel and equipment when driving or walking near the project site.

This second phase of the Clapperton Road Reconstruction project is expected to take until late June. This will be followed by road works, the third phase of utility work (Wilson Street to Leigh Road), construction of the north side retaining wall and sidewalk, and landscape restoration.

Due to a number of unforeseeable factors, completion of this multi-phased project is now anticipated to be late September 2024.

  • Phase two: Just west of the BC Ambulance Station to Mulberry Avenue/Wilson Street
  • Phase three: Mulberry Avenue/Wilson Street to Leigh Road

TRAFFIC IMPACTS

During the project, traffic along Clapperton Road, from Cedar Street to Leigh Road, will be reduced to local traffic only. Detours will be in effect.

Please watch for signage and obey all traffic control personnel and equipment when driving or walking near the project site.

RESIDENT AND BUSINESS 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.

Pedestrian access will be limited.

HOURS OF WORK

Work will begin on April 1, with completion anticipated for the end of September 2024.

Construction is scheduled to occur Monday through Friday, 7:00 am–5:00 pm, with the possibility of some weekend work.

PROJECT UPDATE FOR APRIL 4:

We are advising businesses that Clearview Demolition has returned to site and has begun the following scope of work:

Deconstruction will last until May 2024.

TRAFFIC AND TRANSIT IMPACTS

Traffic detours and curb lane closures will be in effect during demolition. Transit may be impacted.

BUSINESS IMPACTS

Throughout the demolition period, there will be noise and dust disruption due the nature of the work and the equipment on site. Vibratory compaction equipment will also be in use; therefore, any fragile items should be packaged or protected from damage due to vibration. Truck traffic to and from the site will be heaviest towards the latter stages of the project when material is leaving the site.

The sidewalk directly in front of the Northbridge site will be closed to pedestrians.


PROJECT UPDATE:

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:

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.

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.
