Road closure between Kelowna and Naramata extended due to lengthy repairs

A section of road near Kelowna that was washed away by flooding in 2017 is taking longer to repair than expected.

After a culvert at the eight-kilometre mark of Chute Lake Road was washed out by torrential rain in May 2017, temporary pipes were put in place.

Argo Road Maintenance is now working on a more permanent solution that involves installing a multi-plate culvert.

The forestry road connecting Kelowna and Naramata has been shut down while repairs are underway.

The road was scheduled to reopen on Nov. 8 but that date was extended to Nov. 15.
