About the project

Managed by BC’s Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure in partnership with the City of Kelowna, the John Hindle Drive extension project will consist of a 1.6-km, two-lane roadway connecting Highway 97 to Glenmore Road via UBC Okanagan’s upper campus lands.

The project will also include construction of a multi-use paved pathway for pedestrians and cyclists from Glenmore Road to the Hollywood Road roundabout at Highway 97 near UBC Okanagan, and a new road connecting the campus to John Hindle Drive.

All work is anticipated to be complete by the end of summer 2018.
