Public to weigh in on Spall intersection

A proposed intersection upgrade in Spallumcheen seeks the public’s input.

The ministry of transportation has announced it will host an open house to preview plans for an intersection improvement at Eagle Rock Road and Highway 97A.

The open house will take place in the Township of Spallumcheen council chambers on Wednesday, Dec. 5, from 4 to 8 p.m.

“It will be a huge safety improvement there,” said Spallumcheen public works manager Ed Forslund. “I’ve seen the preliminary plans.”

The plans, said Forslund, call for protected left turns going in to Eagle Rock Road, and a protected left turn lane heading south.

The intersection is also slated to be illuminated.

“This project is in the preliminary stages and the ministry is inviting input from the public at this time,” wrote Deborah Newby, senior project manager for the ministry of transportation.
