Update 4:50 p.m.
According to a Ministry of Transportation official, a washout on Eastside Road, north of Okanagan Falls, has resulted in ministry staff temporarily closing a section of the road to traffic while a more fulsome assessment can be carried out.
A full geotechnical assessment is scheduled for Tuesday morning to determine the necessary repairs.
The Ministry has set up a detour on McLean Creek road and residents in the area will be able access their homes.
A section of Eastside Road, south of Penticton, is shut down as it appears part of the road is starting to give way.
On Sunday afternoon a sharp-eyed boater on Skaha Lake caught what could have been a dangerous situation for vehicles travelling on the road as it looks as though a part of southbound lane is starting to crumble.
The road is shut down near a winding portion where people are known to jump off the cliffs into the lake. McLean Creek Road is still accessible from Eastside Road.
The Western News has contacted the Ministry of Highways and the contractor AIM Roads for more information.
