Westside traffic flow slowly improving

Westside Road Interchange traffic flow now moving northbound, southbound traffic on Highway 97 still delayed

  • Nov. 22, 2011 5:00 p.m.

Motorists are advised that Highway 97 northbound

has been re-opened.

Traffic that would normally use the Westside Road Interchange to

enter Highway 97 will do so at Nancee Way. Northbound motorists

can expect an additional 30 minutes driving time.

Traffic northbound to Kelowna is using both lanes of traffic, but

expect reduced speeds to allow traffic from Nancee Way onto

Highway 97 and through the work zone at Westside Road underpass.

Southbound, the detour remains in place using the Westside Road

off ramps and on ramps to detour around the underpass; as well as

Nancee Way.

Crews are working to have Highway 97 southbound open to two lanes

by the evening commute. Travellers should expect to add 30

minutes to their trip as reduced speeds through the work zone

will be in effect.

The Westside Road underpass structure is also closed until

further notice.

Motorists should alter their travel plans to avoid peak traffic

times and to anticipate congestion and delays entering and

leaving Kelowna from the south.

Traffic control personnel will be stationed throughout the area

to maximize the flow of traffic throughout area. Please watch for

crews and equipment working in the area and obey all traffic

signage and flag persons.
