The B.C. Ministry of Transportation is seeking feedback on proposed safety and traffic flow improvements along Highway 97 in Lake Country.

If Central Okanagan residents can’t make it to the open house, they can also voice their feedback on the safety improvements by participating in an online survey.

One area the B.C. government is seeking safety feedback on is around the Glenmore/Beaver Lake Road and Highway 97 intersection.

The open house is part of bigger Highway 97 planning study that was launched last winter by the B.C. government.
