Consultation has concluded

December 16, 2019 - As of mid November 2019, the Todd Road project is substantially complete. Crews will finish a few minor touches in the spring of 2020. The City and BA Dawson would like to thank everyone for their patience and cooperation during this project.

The City is upgrading Todd Road from Klahanie Drive to Ronde Lane. The upgrades are driven by the need for improved pedestrian and motorist safety along this corridor. BA Dawson started construction in May 2019. Completion is targeted for Fall 2019.

The City is upgrading Todd Road from Klahanie Drive to Ronde Lane. The upgrades are driven by the need for improved pedestrian and motorist safety along this corridor. BA Dawson started construction in May 2019. Completion is targeted for Fall 2019.

In February 2016, the City hosted a public information session with Barnhartvale residents to provide an update on the proposed Todd Road Pedestrian Upgrade Project and to present a proposed design. The information session was well attended, and many valuable comments, suggestions, and concerns were received and taken into consideration during the 2017–2018 design phase of the project.

The following challenges and constraints regarding this section of Todd Road were also taken into account during the detailed design process:

  • fixed road right-of-way width
  • existing driveway accesses and steep grades
  • retaining the rural community feel

The resulting project design includes the following improvements:

  • Constructing a raised concrete sidewalk on the uphill side of Todd Road will improve pedestrian safety. By constructing the sidewalk on the uphill side of the road, there will be significantly fewer impacts on properties and access. Please note: residents are required to maintain sidewalks adjacent to their property to ensure that they are free of accumulated snow and ice.
  • Installing concrete curbing on the downhill side of Todd Road to assist in diverting water away from down-slope driveways. In order to accommodate the raised concrete sidewalk and curbing, current on-street parking will be impacted, both during construction and once the improvements are complete.
  • Installing a piped drainage system will provide better storm water management during rainfall and snow melt.
  • Maintaining intersection widths in steeper areas of the corridor to accommodate residents’ access concerns.
  • installing a crosswalk on Todd Road at Ronde Lane.
  • Improving bus stops.
  • Repaving the road.
  • Installing additional lighting, where possible.
  • Installing retaining walls, where required.

    And…we’re there!



    The week of November 18, crews will be completing remaining landscaping, hydro seeding, gravel driveway touch-ups, and catch basin and man hole work. Installation of the street lights at the new crosswalk on Todd Road at upper Lamar Drive is also anticipated to happen this week.

    BA Dawson will conduct a final walk-through of the site and hopes to remove construction signs by November 22.



    The Todd Road Pedestrian Upgrades project was driven by the need for improved pedestrian and motorist safety along this corridor.

    BA Dawson and the City of Kamloops extend a huge thank you to residents, motorists, transit users, pedestrians (and the occasional horse and rider!) for their patience and support throughout the project!
