North Okanagan residents heading south should continue to be aware of a traffic disruption.

Highway 97 is closed to one lane, alternating traffic, in Lake Country, near Wood Lake.

“It will likely remain one lane alternating traffic for next four to six hours,” said Reyna Seabrook, with the District of Lake Country, at 1:10 a.m. Wednesday.

“Crews and helicopter are on scene for an ice rescue and are waiting for the RCMP dive team.”

Anyone heading south to Lake Country and Kelowna can use Oyama Road as an alternate route.
