Commuters and visitors heading into Kamloops Monday will face some detours right in the city's core.
As work commences on Victoria Street West, traffic flow changes arrive as well. Already things have changed, with the section Lansdowne Street between First Avenue and the fork with Seymour Avenue shut down. A section of Seymour Street is now running both directions to allow for traffic to get to Overlanders Bridge from downtown.
The $13 million project was started to deal with utilities under the section of road between First Avenue and Overlanders Bridge which are over 100 years old. Other improvements will be made at the same time, since the road is going to be ripped up anyway.
