PEACHLAND – The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure invites people to share their input online for potential Highway 97 safety improvements through and around Peachland.
The Peachland Transportation Study allows for feedback from people in the community to refine short-, medium- and long-term safety and mobility improvements for the corridor. These options have been determined through technical work that has been completed.
The ministry is following the advice and orders of the provincial health officer to keep British Columbians as safe as possible and help to stop the spread of COVID-19 by avoiding large gatherings. Therefore, no in-person information sessions will take place at this time. Instead, people can find information on the study, the proposed options and share their thoughts by visiting this website: www.gov.bc.ca/peachlandtransportationstudy
The engagement website will be open for public input from Wednesday, Aug. 12 to Sept. 4, 2020. This feedback will provide valuable input into the Peachland Transportation Study.
It is anticipated that the study will be finalized later this year and posted online.
Anyone who is unable to engage online and would like to discuss the study further may contact the project team at: [email protected]
The study has included public engagement and consultation with local governments, Indigenous groups and other community organizations, as well as meetings with a community liaison committee and technical advisory committee. The ministry will continue to engage with these groups to help refine any long-term solutions.
