Westside Road down to single lane in windstorm’s wake

Cleanup underway to clear road of fallen trees, debris

Single-lane alternating traffic is in effect on a portion of Westside Road following Wednesday’s windstorm.

The storm Jan. 13 led to broken trees, downed power lines and debris along Westside Road blocking the main arterial for most motorists — some manoeuvred around the obstacles.

Road maintenance work between Traders Cove Road and Main Street, 16 kilometres north of West Kelowna, is scheduled between 8:30 and at least noon Thursday, Jan. 14, says DriveBC.
