Changes are coming to Penticton’s Westminster Avenue, thanks in part to a grant by ICBC.
Construction is underway on the strip of Westminster Avenue from Main Street to Brunswick Street and is anticipated to last until the end of the month.
According to a release from the City of Penticton, the goals of the project include streamlining the lane arrangement between Main Street and Brunswick Street to single lane in each direction; adding dedicated left turn lanes at Main Street, Martin Street and Winnipeg Street; removing one of the dedicated left turn lanes form Main Street; creation of 35 on-street parallel parking spaces and more.
The release states the city received a $110,000 grant from ICBC for the Westminster Avenue and Eckhardt Avenue initiatives in recognition of the improvements that they provide.
