Construction continues on entrance upgrades at the Greater Vernon Recycling and Disposal Facility.
Contractors will be working along Birnie Road starting Monday, October 1st.
That may result in delays for customers entering and exiting the facility.
Starting mid-October, traffic in and out of facility will be reduced to single lane alternating with traffic control personnel and signage in place to manage traffic flow.
Customers are urged to exercise caution and obey all traffic control personnel and signage while at the facility.
The upgrades include a second inbound lane as well as the relocation of the main gate.
Other work will see security enhancements, installation of lock block walls, improvements to the yard waste drop off area and activation of previously installed yard hydrants to improve response in the event of a fire.
“The entrance upgrade project is on schedule with an expected completion date of November 1, 2018”, stated Mike Fox, General Manager of Community Services. “The upgrades will ultimately improve efficiency and enhance operations at the facility as well as increase customer safety.”
