Rock debris reported on road south of Vernon

Crews headed to Kalamalka Lakeview Drive as of 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 17

A road normally used for detours on Highway 97 south now finds itself with some possible work to be done on Sunday, Jan. 17.

DriveBC says on its Twitter page there are reports of rock debris halfway along Kalamalka Lakeview Drive where it runs parallel to Highway 97 south of Vernon.

The road was used as a detour on Saturday, Jan. 16, after the highway was closed in both directions for a number of hours due to a serious accident at Birnie Road.

Crews are en route. Motorists are asked to please drive with caution.
