Possible traffic disruptions ahead

Joanne Layh

Peachland residents may experience some traffic disruptions over the next couple weeks while a geotechnical firm completes some fieldwork in the area for future Highway 97 intersection upgrades.

Work is scheduled to take place on Huston Rd, Walker Rd, Buchanan Rd, Trepanier Bench and Highway 97.

While drilling work is taking place along the highway and public roads, there may be single lane alternating traffic or traffic interruptions, director of operations Shawn Grundy told the View.

These preliminary works are intended to aid in detailed design and will consist of utility locating, excavation and borehole drilling, the municipality stated in a Facebook post.

The approximate timelines are as follows;

June 30 and July 5 – utility locator on site;

July 5 – site preparation at the north end of Huston Rd;

July 7-8 – overnight drilling on Highway 97 (primarily at the intersections of Highway 97/Trepanier Bench Rd and Highway 97/Huston Rd); and

July 10-14 – borehole drilling at other locations noted above (daytime).
