Improvements to a busy intersection along Highway 33 in Kelowna will begin on Monday, with construction running until the end of October.

According to the City of Kelowna, the month-long modification will involve how motorists enter and exit Highway 33 from Ziprick Road.

The improvements will include a new ‘smart right’ turn designated to create safer driving angles for motorists.
