Peachland Transportation Study 2020 – Results

Engagement Summary

The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure sought feedback on the Highway 97 – Peachland Transportation Study. The ministry has studied current conditions along the highway and future transportation needs around Peachland to develop an understanding of the transportation priorities and constraints in the region.

We explored ways to improve safety, travel times, active transportation, transit, and congestion moving in and through Peachland and the Central Okanagan region. As a key part of the study we wanted to hear your feedback on short, medium, and long-term safety improvements options to inform their development and refinement.

Input gathered through this engagement helped inform the analysis and refinement of corridor improvement options. Your feedback validated several short- and medium-term options that were developed to address particular safety and operational issues identified in the Phase I study. Your feedback also validated the locations for which the improvement options are proposed. This study will play an important role in the ministry seeking future funding opportunities.
