That backhoe has been there for months. I drive by there frequently and really ... nothing is happening.

Interesting, because I drive by there quite frequently, and I have been watching for activity, and today was the first day I noticed the backhoe and storage container. Pretty sure I would have noticed it before.

Penticton Nissan does have a website up and the address listed is in the Satikw Crossing development.

Their website states they will be opening Fall 2017 and that they are hiring if anyone is interested.

No date on that website creation. Given that we are only days away from April and there is no evidence of a road and infrastructure start that would have to be completed before the actual dealership building could start, I think a fall opening might be a tad optimistic. Don't forget that the City provided a sewer connection to the bridge, not potable water so that water has to cross a lot of real estate to reach this developed land.
The bridge itself was announced to be started every year for about ten yrs too. My skepticism comes from the history of failed announcements and it is only when we see actual iron on the ground and bucket in the ground that they become real. I understand the want of creating some mass interest to drive the project, but so many failed announcements has put a serious crimp on the credibility of performance.
But who knows? Maybe they secured some more gov't money? Maybe the Casino ransom money?

I saw a few lifts of pvc pipe across the bridge today. Could something really be happening?

As a cyclist who often uses the channel pathway, I love the new bridge!

Ya me too. It was way too far a stretch between the industrial ave bridge and Skaha. Now I can cut off about 700 unnecessary meters from my bike ride.
