Drivers warned to expect delays as work starts near Juniper Ridge

Highland Road work begins

The City of Kamloops is warning drivers heading to and from Juniper Ridge to expect delays in the coming months.

Highland Road is undergoing significant upgrades between Valleyview Drive and Highway 1, including new sewer mains, a new sidewalk and new streetlights, as well as repaving on nearby side streets.

The city said traffic on Highland Road will be reduced to one lane in each direction.

Work began on Thursday and will continue through the fall, the city said.

“Careful consideration was given to the timing of this project, which will be completed in phases to help ease the impacts to traffic and potential high fire hazard seasons,” the city said on its website.
