Penticton’s Government Street to undergo intermittent closures for construction

Closures will only impact southbound traffic

Commuters are advised to avoid heading south on Government Street starting Monday, July 6, as the City of Penticton will be completing bus stop construction on Government Street in front of Penticton Regional Hospital.

There will be intermittent closures of the south bound lanes of Government Street to facilitate changes to the sidewalk and curbs.

The construction is expected to last two weeks.

Commuters are advised to avoid the area and take an alternate route.

During closures, access to the Penticton Regional Hospital emergency room will still be available via Carmi Ave. However, access to the Hospital parkade and main entrance will need to be made from Industrial Ave. and the northbound lanes of Government Street.
