The District of Invermere is spending nearly $800,000 to revamp the portion of 7th Avenue near Pothole Park by the May long weekend.

First reported in March, planned upgrades include better crossings at the 7th Avenue and 9th Street intersection, an expansion of the roadway which would make room for a future bike lane and more plants and street lighting. Contractors will also install sidewalk on the park side of the street, replacing the path pedestrians currently navigate to reach the rest of the downtown core.
