Kal Lake Road Plan

Vernon City Councillors will be deciding a controversial road works plan today.

The  budget for the Kalamalka Lake Road  is $3,031,424.

The construction schedule is from mid-April to mid-October. A full road closure is expected between Browne Road and the Alpine
Centre for up to 4 months.   Staff says they've heard from 18 businesses with concerns about the closure.  

Reducing the closure time to six weeks with  implement single lane alternating traffic would increase  the cost by $279,500 and the completion date into November and traffic would be waiting a minimum of eight minutes and up to 20 minutes 

The mayor agrees with staff that taking a detour would actually be faster than sitting in single lane alternating traffic.
