Construction is set to start on the 2.5 kilometres of the Okanagan Rail Trail located in the Regional District of North Okanagan.
RDNO Parks Manager Keith Pinkoski says in the first half of September, personnel will be preparing the trail corridor for full construction.
“This phase will focus on environmental, agricultural and archaeological protection, mitigating potential geotechnical hazards, drainage improvements, and safe road crossings.”
Pinkoski says some activities will include a clean up of existing materials, enabling full construction to be more efficient and cost effective.
“All efforts will be made to mitigate impacts to adjacent properties and the surrounding environment.”
Parts of the trail will be closed as construction proceeds, and people are asked to obey all construction and closure signs.
