Enderby targets highway at meeting

Enderby politicians are trying to keep transportation matters on the front-burner.

Council members met with Transportation Minister Mary Polak at the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention in Victoria Wednesday.

The primary focus was recent upgrades to Highway 97A through the community.

“There are some loose ends to tie up. There were some cost overruns,” said Coun. Brad Case.

“We want to understand what our costs will be.”

Council also spoke to Polak about the long-term alignment of Highway 97A to alleviate traffic congestion.

While a bypass has been suggested, Case admits that could be difficult as the growing community means there isn’t a lot of land available.

“It’s a very tight corridor and we need to work with the Splatsin First Nation on this,” he said.

“We hope the ministry will keep them in the loop.”
