A Revelstoke road maintenance and utility upgrade project worth $1.5 million was awarded to Jake-Jay Construction.

The project, which will include parking and sidewalk improvements near Okanagan College and the new splash park, was identified in the city’s Pavement Management Plan as high priority.
