Victoria Street West Improvements Are Complete
Kamloops, BC – After just over 16 months, the Victoria Street West Improvements Project is now complete! Construction of the $13 million project started April 15, 2019, at the east end of the corridor near 1st Avenue and moved west to the Overlanders Bridge. The project included replacing and undergrounding utilities; reconstructing the road; and improving pedestrian access, lighting, and landscaping.
Improvements to the Victoria Street West corridor were driven by the need to replace aging infrastructure, including water, sanitary, and storm services that dated back to the early 1900s. Beautification, enhancements to the roadway, and increased pedestrian safety were also significant drivers behind the project.
“Both the City and Extreme Excavating worked very hard to finish this project significantly ahead of schedule. We recognize the impact this project had on businesses and residents within the project limits, as well as the community members who travel through this main corridor. We sincerely appreciate everyone’s support throughout this project,” said Jen Fretz, the City’s Civic Operations Director.
The City and Extreme Excavating would like to acknowledge and thank the Victoria Street West businesses and residents as well as the motorists, transit users, and pedestrians who travelled through the corridor for their patience throughout the project.
The project team will be out on Victoria Street West on Wednesday, August 19, around 12:00 noon to extend a thank you appreciation “wave” to all.
