Shannon Lake Road bridge to reopen Thursday

Traffic will be moving again over Shannon Lake Road Bridge as of 8:00 am Thursday, October 12, as the City of West Kelowna’s largest infrastructure project of 2017 comes to an end.

The $1.55 million project included:

  •          Diversion and habitat protection of McDougall Creek
  •          Road realignment
  •          Sidewalk installation
  •          Complete bridge replacement
  •          Environmental monitoring
  •          Safety and materials testing and inspection
  •          Habitat restoration

The new bridge was built to replace a decades old structure that could not accommodate heavier traffic like fire trucks

The new structure is designed to last 70-plus years.
