Closures planned for Main Street

A portion of Main Street will be closed next week as part of ongoing underground infrastructure improvements.

Construction crews are currently working on the lower portion of Carmi Avenue between Government and Main Street to replace and upgrade sewer and water mains. That section of street is currently closed to all but local traffic. Work is scheduled to be finished no later than the start of the school year in early September.

A portion of Main Street will be closed next week as part of ongoing underground infrastructure improvements.

Main will be closed to traffic on July 28 between Carmi Ave. and Granby St., with work beginning at 4 a.m. and likely to last all day.

This is part of the significant upgrade to the water and sewer systems along Carmi Avenue to support the proposed expansion of Penticton Regional Hospital with construction of the Patient Care Tower.

All lanes of traffic, in both directions, will be closed. Traffic will be detoured around the closed section of Main via Duncan and Industrial, connecting to Government Street and Atkinson Avenue.

While the City of Penticton is working with businesses in the affected area to minimize disruption, they are recommending drivers avoid the area if possible.
