September update: A section of Stevens Road will close starting on Tuesday, Sept. 14 to accommodate phase one construction. This phase of construction includes relocating overhead and underground utilities and building a retaining wall and portions of the roundabout.

Project scope

We're improving how our community gets around! The $6.15 million active transportation corridor project includes construction of a roundabout at the Shannon Lake-Bartley-Stevens Roads intersection and bike lane and sidewalk improvements east of Dominion Road to Westlake Road. The entire project is expected to be complete in summer 2022.

Council’s 2021 – 2022 Strategic Priorities Invest in Infrastructure objectives include active transportation upgrades to the Shannon Lake corridor to enhance safety, access and traffic flow. This investment will promote economic prosperity, contribute to health, well-being and reduce emissions.

  • Phase 1 of the project includes relocating overhead and underground utilities, and building a retaining wall and portions of the new roundabout at the Shannon Lake-Bartley-Stevens intersection.
  • Phase 2 of active transportation upgrades on Shannon Lake Road are expected to begin next year. Upgrades include completion of the roundabout, and construction of sidewalks and bike lanes east of Dominion Road to Westlake Road.

As part of the design for the Shannon Lake-Bartley-Stevens intersection, a thorough review of the current and future traffic demands for the intersection for all vehicle types and other alternative modes of getting around was completed. This independent review took into consideration the near term and what we could expect in the next 20 years.

Construction timelines

Crews will begin site mobilization and partial construction of the roundabout in early to mid-September and be complete by December 2021, subject to weather conditions and other factors. As part of construction, the Shannon Lake-Bartley-Stevens intersection will be periodically closed.

Starting Tuesday, Sept. 14, crews will begin phase one of construction on the roundabout at the Shannon Lake-Bartley-Stevens intersection. Phase one of construction includes relocating overhead and underground utilities, and building a retaining wall and portions of the new roundabout.

  • To accommodate phase one construction, Stevens Road from the Bartley-Shannon Lake intersection to Juliann Road will be closed to vehicle traffic at all times for approximately 12 weeks.
  • We anticipate crews will re-open the intersection in early December when work is complete and updates will be issued prior to opening.
  • Keeping a portion of Stevens Road closed during construction will shorten the overall construction timeframe.

Detour route

A detour will be in place on Byland Road to Juliann Road for motorists and access to Byland Road from Stevens Road (via Juliann) will be maintained. Drivers, cyclists and pedestrians are advised to proceed through the detour with caution.

All area businesses will remain accessible and the contractor has placed digital signage along Highway 97, Shannon Lake Road and Stevens Road to help motorists navigate this area during the closure. Emergency vehicle, transit and alternate business access will be maintained at all times.

Sidewalks and bike lanes

We are investing in the community to build a brighter future. Improving pedestrian and cycling access in the Shannon Lake active transportation corridor will provide a key connection to the West Kelowna Business Park.

  • Sidewalks will be installed on the south side of Dominion Road to Westlake Road
  • Bicycle lanes will be added to both sides of Shannon Lake Road

Benefits of a roundabout

  • Pollution reduction: Significant reduction in vehicle idling results in less fuel burned into the atmosphere
  • Safety: All vehicles travel in the same direction, never crossing paths. This reduces the number of serious crashes and slower speeds also provide drivers with more time to react and make decisions.
  • Community benefits: Roundabouts provide traffic calming measures and reduce speeds
  • Improved traffic flow: Reduce required idling times at intersections
