Update for October 3
Phase 1 - Highland Road Between Valleyview Drive and Highway 1
Crews are nearing completion of the water main work on Phase 1 of the Highland Road Upgrades project. Site preparation for the new east side sidewalk continues. Work in the centre median (installation of bricks, irrigation and trees) will take place mid/late October.
Surface restoration and roadworks are underway in preparation for paving. Weather permitting, the bottom lift of asphalt on Highland Road is tentatively scheduled to be laid October 6 or 7, followed by the top lift of asphalt the week of October 24. During paving days, motorists should expect some delays.
This week, crews began installation of the traffic signals at the intersection of Highland Road/Valleyview Drive. This will be completed in Phase 1.
During Phase 1 work, Highland Road remains open to traffic, one lane each direction. Crescent Drive at Highland Road remains closed to all traffic.
Flamingo Road utility work, regrading and repaving is complete.
Phase 2 - Highland Road Between Valleyview Drive and Valleyview Arena
Phase 2 (installation of new water lines; repaving), has been postponed until Spring 2023.
Transit Routes 16 and 17 continue to detour. Visit BCTransit.com/Kamloops and check advisories for detour route and temporary bus stops.
Emergency vehicles will be given priority access through the construction zone.
