Business and shoppers feel impact of Kelowna construction

(Courtesy CBC)
The second week of construction in downtown Kelowna has changed the look of Bernard Street where the cars, trees and the street is gone.
It's been replaced by piles of dirt and pipe, which is part of a 14-million dollar investment to help rejuvenate the downtown, enhance people's experiences and replace aging utilities and streetfronts.

Crews are widening sidewalks, adding new trees and sprucing up the image of the area.

But what kind of impact is all of this work having on businesses and people who work in or visit Kelowna's downtown area?

The CBC's Liz Hostland took a stroll on Bernard to ask shoppers and business owners what they think about another week of work!
