Bridge crash backs up traffic

Traffic backed up by crash on William R Bennett bridge

If your commute over the William R Bennett bridge seemed particularly egregious this morning it’s because of a crash entering Kelowna.

The crash happened happened around 7 a.m. on bridge hill and traffic was backed up well into West Kelowna as only one lane was open, re-routing traffic around the vehicles involved.

Crews had it almost cleared by 7:45 a.m., but it will likely take a while longer to have the traffic flowing freely.

We will have more information as it becomes available.
