Road and sidewalk construction at the intersection of Wallinger Avenue and Spokane Street in Kimberley should wrap up Wednesday night.
The intersection improvements include “bump-outs” to improve pedestrian safety and sight lines as well as provide traffic calming measures.
During the reconstruction of the sidewalks adjacent to the new Veteran Memorial Park, workers noticed the poor condition of the many layers of asphalt as well as storm drainage issues. These factors led to a larger than expected paving project. While the road is under construction, two water valves are being replaced and a fire hydrant is being relocated.
Paving will take place on Wednesday, June 28th and it is expected that the street will be re-opened by Wednesday evening.
We thank motorists for their patience. The City will provide more notice in the future.
