Repair work continues on a portion of Lower Glenrosa Road, which is expected to remain closed for several more days.

Motorists are asked to obey all emergency traffic signage and use Glenrosa Road as an alternate route. Transit users can access Route 21 via Webber Road. Pedestrians are asked to avoid the area while emergency repairs are underway.

On Friday, March 23, Mayor Doug Findlater signed a Local State of Emergency to facilitate the City of West Kelowna conducting the repairs.
