Trans-Canada Highway intersection open house scheduled

An open house has been scheduled to look at preliminary design plans for Revelstoke's beleaguered Trans-Canada Highway intersection.

An open house to upgrade Revelstoke's much-maligned highway intersection is scheduled for Wednesday

An open house has been scheduled to look at preliminary design plans for Revelstoke’s beleaguered Trans-Canada Highway intersection.

Mayor Mark McKee announced at the start of Tuesday’s council meeting that the open house will take place at the community centre on Wednesday, March 2, at 7:30 p.m.

This will be the first opportunity to get a look at and provide on the proposed designs for improving the intersection of the Trans-Canada Highway, Victoria Road, and Mutas Road. The intersection has grown increasingly problematic in recent years as traffic into town has increased. The city and local businesses have had to hire people to direct traffic on busy summer weekends.

The intersection is home to McDonald’s, A&W, Shell, and Tim Horton’s, and is soon to be home to a new Petro Canada and Starbucks.

In November, the city hired McElhanney Consulting Services to prepare design options for the intersection, and manage the construction, which is expected to take place this fall.

The total cost for the project is budgeted at $1.1 million.

The Review has asked city hall for any designs that will be shown at the open house. We will post them online as soon as they are made available.
