Lake Country highway to be closed for rock blasting

Construction work on the Highway 97 bypass in Lake Country will include rock blasting Wednesday and Thursday.

Windley Contracting is conducting clearing work between Winfield and Oyama between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

A 30-minute highway closure from the Oceola Road intersection to Ponderosa Road is scheduled between 1 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. both days.

Motorists may want to use alternate routes during these times. A detour route is available via Oyama Road on the east side of Wood Lake.

Windley Contracting has developed a traffic management plan to minimize traffic impacts especially to emergency services, transit, local property owners and commuters.
