West Kelowna: Installation of water lines to impact Westlake Road for 6 weeks

A small section of Westlake Road in West Kelowna will be busier than normal for the next six weeks.

The city says starting Monday and lasting until April 26, the road will feature single-lane, alternating traffic from Horizon Drive to West Kelowna Road.

The traffic pattern will run weekdays, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., and is necessary as construction crews begin work to install the next section of water lines for the Rose Valley water treatment plant.
