The huge $13 million West Victoria Street project will be back on the council agenda this month.
City of Kamloops Capital Projects Manager Darren Crundwell says the report will offer different funding solutions after a grant application to the senior levels of government failed.
Crundwell is still hoping construction can start next year.
“We are going to take it back to council with another recommendation for options and still try and complete the project with internal funds. If council does want to revisit the whole scope in general, if the price tag is not appealing, we still got to replace the water, the sewer, the storm, and the roads. It is just going to look pretty much like it does now.”
The project will include roadworks, utility upgrading, lighting, sidewalks, landscaping, signal and crosswalk changes, and BC Hydro underground work.
The stretch of Victoria Street to the Overlanders Bridge was built more than one hundred years ago.
