Work complete on Nancee Way underpass

It didn't come without a few hiccups, but the Westside Road Interchange Project is officially complete.

It didn’t come without a few hiccups, but the Westside Road Interchange Project is officially complete.

Westbank First Nation Chief Robert Louie was on hand for a ribbon cutting ceremony to officially open the Nancee Way underpass to traffic Monday morning.

“We are extremely pleased to announce that the road is now open and available for use,” said Louie.

“Nancee Way provides an important addition to the local road network of Westbank First Nation lands…servicing the area and providing an alternate emergency access to the Okanagan Lake Shopping Centre as well as potential future developments on both sides of Highway 97.”

Initially the underpass was expected to be completed in the summer of 2012; however, the failure of a Westside Road overpass retaining wall delayed the project.
