Another landslide blocks road access in the Okanagan

Several slides are continuing to wreak havoc on Okanagan roadways.

This afternoon, a landslide in Peachland blocked access to Princeton Avenue, closing the road between Columbia Street and Somerset Avenue.

An alternate route is available from Highway 97, Renfrew Road, Highway Lane and Lipsell Avenue to access Columbia Street.

The District has yet to say when the road is expected to reopen.

On Tuesday morning, a washout took out a portion of Westside Road, closing the road in both directions for the morning.

A single traffic has reopened, however, a 50% load restriction remains in place for commercial vehicles.

An Evacuation Alert for 12 Killiney Beach area properties currently remains in effect for Westside Road.
