It’s that time of year again for the City of Penticton’s annual road line painting.
The road painting is set to begin this week and should be completed by mid-May. Infrastructure that will be getting repainted includes on-street parking stalls, directional arrows, crosswalks, parking lots and bikes lanes.
Construction of the second section of Penticton’s lake-to-lake bike lane is also well underway.
In October, city council approved the estimated $4.7 million price tag for the next phase of the lane.
Work on Duncan Avenue, Atkinson Street and Kinney Avenue will mostly proceed from north to south on various routes:
• Between Fairview and Duncan
• From Duncan to Kinney
• Between Lanes and Atkinson
• From Atkinson to South Main Street
Before construction on the next phase of the project begins, however, the city issued a statement reminding people about the road delays they should expect to see during spring.
“Residents, businesses and drivers in the area should expect to see crews at work during day-time hours, Monday to Friday, with more activity ramping up through the months of May and June,” the city said in its announcement.
Construction for a number of pedestrian crossing and traffic calming projects is getting underway this month and will be carried out throughout the summer in Penticton.
Residents can expect some traffic and access disruptions, said the city. Construction of sidewalk bulb-outs and upgraded lighting at pedestrian crossings at Ellis and Wade, Green Avenue at South Main and Penticton and Edgewood Drive.
