4th / Victoria / Townley Roundabout
UPDATE: Oct 29, 2020 - The #TownleyRoundly roundabout is OPEN!
A brief ribbon cutting ceremony took place this morning while the roundabout traffic hummed away in the background. Mayor Sulz addressed the work crew, thanking them for their efforts and hard work. Though the project took a bit longer than anticipated, it came in on-budget and with extended infrastructure work completed beyond the original scope. Grant funding was a huge factor in making this project happen and the City thanks Infrastructure Canada and UBCM-Federal Gas Tax Fund for their support.
“Investing in safe and efficient roadways helps ensure people and goods can move smoothly and supports economic development,” said the Honourable Catherine McKenna, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities. “It’s great to see the federal Gas Tax Fund delivering results like this new roundabout, which will improve driver safety and traffic flow at one of Revelstoke’s key intersections. Canada’s infrastructure plan invests in thousands of projects, creates jobs across the country, and builds stronger communities.”
“Communities across B.C. are upgrading and expanding core infrastructure with investments provided by the federal Gas Tax Fund,” said Councillor Brian Frenkel, president of the Union of B.C. Municipalities. “Revelstoke’s new roundabout promises to keep traffic moving and improve safety for residents, and it is good to see it move into operation.”
Thank you to the community for your patience through the project. Please drive safely!
