The goal is to increase safety and mobility along the Highway 97 corridor and meet the future traffic demands that projected population and economic growth in the area will bring.

Public Consultation

The engagement summary report from the March 2016 consultation period is now available.

Based on initial planning and discussions with the Westbank First Nation and City of West Kelowna, the ministry developed conceptual plans for improvements at the two intersections. The ministry sought community input on these conceptual layouts from March 2 - 20, 2016, which included two public open houses.  The following materials were presented to the public:

Input received from March 2 – 20, 2016 is being considered, along with technical information, costs and benefits, and further input from local governments, as preliminary designs for the intersection improvements are developed. There will be additional opportunities to provide input regarding the Boucherie Road and Westlake Road intersection improvements as the projects proceed.
