The City of Vernon says the upgrade to the Vernon Curling Rink parking lot should be done by Aug. 23.
The $439,000 project is said to be on time and budget.
The upgrade is replacing the surface, and updating some of the services including a water main that dates back 60 years.
“The curling rink parking lot was badly deteriorated and in need of replacement,” says a City release. “The completed work includes the replacement of sidewalks on the north end of the Vernon Recreation Centre and of a water main originally installed in 1966. The next stage of construction includes the replacement of the blacktop surface and substrate, updating a fire hydrant, new storm and sewer lines, new catch basins and a new garbage bin enclosure.”
The parking stall layout will be realigned and repainted to increase parking capacity.
Paving is scheduled take place the third week of August with cleanup and line painting the following week.
The lot is closed to all traffic during the construction.
