The Central Okanagan Planning Study

Do you live or work in the Central Okanagan region?

If so, are you interested in being a part of the transportation planning process for this growing region?

This website is for interested citizens to learn more about the transportation planning going on in the Central Okanagan, and to join in the online discussion.

This is all part of the ministry’s three-year Central Okanagan Planning Study, which was launched in the fall of 2014. The purpose of the study is to develop potential route proposals to address future mobility in the Central Okanagan area.

The study is looking at needs of the travelling public, community land use plans, provincial transportation priorities and a possible future second crossing of Okanagan Lake. Related to this is the The Highway 97 – Peachland Transportation Study which is under way to identify and assess possible short, medium, and long-term solutions to address future needs through and/or around Peachland.
