PROJECT UPDATE

Starting Monday, June 10, a single-lane alternating traffic pattern will be in effect on Shannon Lake Road from the Kinsmen Park lower soccer field to Asquith Road, weekdays from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. with the possibility of weekend work, if required.

  • While this work is underway, motorists are advised to expect delays of up to 10 minutes to accommodate crews and equipment working in the area.
  • Traffic pattern changes are necessary to allow crews to work as quickly as possible while ensuring public and crew safety.
  • Motorists are advised to drive with caution, follow all posted speed limits and expect minor delays when travelling through the work area. This section of Shannon Lake Road will re-open evenings and weekends.
  • All area businesses will remain open during construction.

We are enhancing road safety and creating an active transportation corridor for our community along Shannon Lake Road!

Construction of a new multi-use pathway and road upgrades on Shannon Lake Road will enhance safety and create new active transportation and healthy living opportunities.

The $5.2 million project will be constructed in two sections and all work is anticipated to be complete in summer 2025. Partial funding of up to $500,000 is being provided under the B.C. Active Transportation Infrastructure Grant Program. Thank you to the Government of British Columbia!


Key project dates

  • Spring 2024: Site mobilization and early works
  • Summer 2025: Project complete

Timelines are subject to weather, contractor timelines and other factors. Please visit this page regularly for updates.

The project is being constructed in two sections, which will consist of:


Section 1

Section 1 will be completed in three phases:

  • Phase 1: Road improvements from Kinsmen Park (lower field) to Asquith Road
  • Phase 2: Construction of a roundabout at the Asquith and Shannon Lake Road intersection
  • Phase 3: Road improvements from Asquith Road to Swite Road

Section 1 project scope: What work is being done?

  • 1.7-kilometre (850-metres each side of roadway) multi-use pathway on both sides of the roadway from Kinsmen Park (lower field) to Swite Road
  • Roundabout at Asquith Road and Shannon Lake Road intersection
  • 900 metres of road upgrades which includes concrete curbs and paving
  • Pedestrian activated crosswalks at Kinsmen Park (lower field), Shannon Way, and Shannon Ridge Drive
  • 850 metres of street lighting on both sides of the roadway from Kinsmen Park (lower field) to Swite Road
  • Stormwater upgrades
  • Landscaped boulevards


Section 2

Section 2 of the project is scheduled for spring 2025, and will see additional asphalt sidewalks added from Golf Course Drive to the existing sidewalk at 2649 Shannon Lake Road.


Section 2 project scope: What work is being done?

  • 400 metres of 1.8-metre-wide asphalt sidewalk and bike lanes between Golf Course Drive to existing sidewalk at 2649 Shannon Lake Road
  • 400 metres of streetlighting


What to expect during construction

Construction may cause occasional noise, dust, dirt and vibrations. Work outside of typical construction hours may be required temporarily. Driveway accesses will be maintained with minor interruptions for moving crews and equipment:

  • Crews will mobilize to the site and stage equipment and materials
  • Crews will complete stormwater and road upgrade work, install bike lanes and streetlights
  • Pedestrian and cyclist access will be maintained
  • The contractor will coordinate local access for residents living within the work area to ensure continued access to their homes
  • Access to Kinsmen Park will be maintained
  • Signs and reader boards will be placed along the detour route to help regulate speeds

Please note that during all phases of construction, access for transit and emergency vehicles will be maintained.
