No matter what corner of Kelowna you live in or drive through this summer, plan for a bumpy commute.

The City of Kelowna has announced resurfacing work scheduled for 32 sections of road equaling about 10 kilometres of pavement.

The full list is below, but it includes roundabouts at Casorso Road, Swamp Road and UBC Okanagan that will undergo repairs.

The city is responsible for maintaining 1,690 kilometres of roadways and said it monitors and tests roads regularly to identify and prioritize maintenance work.

This year’s work is said to cost $4.5 million.

While some Kelowna residents may think the whole city feels like it’s one big road construction zone during summer, the city’s schedule for road work prevents mass replacement at one time, it said.

Work on roundabouts is said to be scheduled in the evening hours to have less impact on motorists.

Residents in neighbourhoods affected by resurfacing projects will be notified, according to the City of Kelowna.

In some areas, crews have begun cleaning, sweeping, sealing cracks, flushing and completing some minor shoulder repairs ahead of major work.
