South Okanagan – Summerland Rockslide

This section of highway was closed Aug. 28, 2023 because of a rockslide when approximately 3,000 cubic metres of material came down.

Highway 97 is generally OPEN to two lanes of traffic, one in each direction, subject to short scheduled and unscheduled  closures.

Blasting will make short closures necessary. Highway 97 will be closed occasionally to all traffic for blasting between Callan Road and Okanagan Lake Provincial Park North of Summerland. The highway will reopen when work and safety assessments are complete. The public will be notified as early as possible prior to each blast through DriveBC.ca

Oversize Loads

Daily traffic control on site. Typical travel delays observed are 2-3 minutes or less. Oversize loads are permitted through the site. These loads must be prescheduled prior to arrival with traffic control personnel on site.

Find further information on the Summerland Rockslide project page.
