Resurfacing for part of Westsyde Road

Approximately 10.5 km of Westsyde Road will be resurfaced

Dawson Construction has been awarded a $1.5-million contract to resurface portions of Westsyde Road north of Kamloops, improving the ride for local residents and  industrial users.

Approximately 10.5 km of Westsyde Road will be resurfaced, with the resurfacing work running between the northern boundary of the city and the north end of Black Pines.

Work will start this summer and is scheduled to be completed by the end of September.

Westsyde Road is an industrial haul route, as well as the only road connecting the Whispering Pines Indian Band and the community of Black Pines to the City of Kamloops.

The existing asphalt is more than 20 years old. These repairs will improve safety on Westsyde Road and make the ride more enjoyable.

This work builds on the $1.3 billion invested in highway improvements in the Thompson-Okanagan since 2001.
