Public consultation plans announced for Glenmore/Highway 97 intersection

Plans are moving ahead for Lake Country most dangerous intersection

Public consultation for a fix for the Highway 97/Glenmore Road intersection that has been plaguing Lake Country residents for years is expected to be held later this spring.

Norm Letnick, Kelowna-Lake Country MLA posted on his Facebook page that he asked the transportation minister if there was an update on the review of options to fix the intersection.

He said a response was given that public engagement would take place in late spring with a final decision made within a year and a half.

In a previous interview with The Calendar, Mayor James Baker said it’s been studied for the last five or six years and council has been pushing the province to fix it.
