Road Update
The planned closure of Kalamalka Lake Road between Browne Road and the Vernon city boundary (Phase 2 of the Kalamalka Lake Road – Okanagan Rail Trail Project) has been deferred to late spring 2018. Current work on Phase 1 is expected to be wrapped up by the end of August. The full project was originally scheduled to be complete by late October 2017.

In order to complete Phase 2 of the project, BC Hydro poles need to be relocated along Kalamalka Lake Road. Work on the project was delayed when BC Hydro crews responded to the state of emergency in the province. Crews from BC Hydro will continue to relocate poles in preparation for the next phase of construction in the spring.

The City wishes to express its support for the work BC Hydro is doing in support of areas affected by wildfires.

The City expects substantial completion of Phase 1 of the Kalamalka Lake Road – Okanagan Rail Trail project by mid-August, and pole relocation completion by mid-September. Minimal disruption to traffic, including lane closure and possible single-lane alternating traffic, is expected this year.
