Westside Road

Post by Fancy »

Overnight rain has made the driving situation on the west side of Okanagan Lake worse.

DriveBC has just indicated that Westside Road has been closed in both directions three kilometres north of Fintry because of a washout. There are no detours available.

Jeremy Sandjenko's wife was trying to get to work in Kelowna this morning but she ran into flagging crews who turned her around by Ewing Landing about 40 minutes.

"The first one's been fixed but the second one by Ewing's Landing I guess got worse last night."

Sandjenko tells Castanet it's been single lane alternating traffic and flaggers have been on the job all week.

This is for AtticSalt as well - who are you talking about Shaun Reimer or Brian Reardon? (the officials talking about the 200 year event).

And what does that have to do with Westside Road?
