There will be no work on March 30, but night work will start up again April 1 and go till April 5 depending on schedules.

“Thank you for your patience and understanding, this night time work will help with the project and will allow the work to be done outside of regular work times for less inconvenience to your business as well will not interrupt the bus transit service at Wade Ave.,” stated a press release from the Downtown Penticton Association.

The release noted work will be noisy and there will be limited vehicle access from Padmore to Wade Avenue on those days.
