Westside Road Interchange project site
WEST KELOWNA - Effective immediately, motorists are advised that there are two lanes of traffic moving in each direction through the Westside Road Interchange project site.
Southbound, one lane of traffic will use Highway 97 through the project site. A second lane of southbound traffic will use the detour route on the Westside Road off ramps and on ramps around the underpass.
Northbound, one lane of traffic will use Highway 97 through the project site. A second lane of northbound traffic will use the detour via the Westside Road off-ramp to Sneena Way, to a temporary connection to Highway 97 on bridge hill.
The Westside Road underpass structure also remains closed until further notice. Traffic that would normally use the Westside Road Interchange to enter Highway 97 will do so at Nancee Way.
Travellers should expect to add 30 minutes to their trip as reduced speeds through the work zone will be in effect. Motorists should alter their travel plans to avoid peak traffic times and to anticipate congestion and delays entering and leaving Kelowna from the south.
Traffic control personnel will be stationed throughout the area to maximize the flow of traffic throughout area. Please watch for crews and equipment working in the area and obey all traffic signage and flag persons.
