Armstrong, BC – The City of Armstrong has decided to defer the Okanagan Street Sanitary Upgrade Project. This decision was necessary due to unfavorable groundwater conditions which made the project too difficult and cost prohibitive to complete as designed.
The City will reevaluate the project design to find a way to complete the project in a feasible and cost-effective manner. Contractors will be working to reinstate Okanagan Street with site preparation and paving over the next two weeks. Please watch for traffic flow changes, slow down, and obey traffic control personnel during this period.
A full closure of Okanagan Street between Wolfenden Terrace and Fletcher Avenue will be effective on October 11, 2023, and until further notice. Detours will be provided while the site is being restored.
Current updates on the project and road closures will be provided through the City of Armstrong’s website and social media platforms.
The City of Armstrong would like to thank all residents and visitors for their patience as we maneuver through a difficult situation and ensure the right decisions are made for the community.
