Revelstoke’s latest traffic circle is finally finished.
The new traffic roundabout at Victoria Rd., Townley Rd. and 4th St. opened Oct. 29.
At a ribbon cutting ceremony, the Mayor Gary Sulz thanked the workers on the project. The work was done by Kamloops-based Eagle Rock Construction.

“I know there has been some pressure to get it done,” Sulz said.
The detour along 8th St. has been in place since April.
While the project was hoped to be finished in September, Sulz said usually a project this large would take two years.
The circle was constructed as a solution to remedy Revelstoke’s top non-highway collision intersection.
“It’s a very beautiful roundabout,” Sulz said.
The city estimated the project to cost $5.8 million, with more than $5 million coming from the federal gas tax through the Union of BC Municipalities.
The Review has reached out to the city, asking if the project stayed on budget.
