[ARCHIVED] Highway 97A to Reopen August 5

Highway 97 During the Day

Wednesday, August 4, 2021

The Ministry of Transportation and Highways confirms the reopening of Highway 97A in both directions between Emeny Road and Sicamous Creek Frontage Road at noon (12 pm) on August 5, 2021.

DriveBC is the best source of information on exactly when the road will be open tomorrow.

Travellers should be advised that driving times will be slower than normal, as traffic control personnel will be assisting the BC Wildfire service with moving firefighting equipment on and off the highway safely. Highway pullouts will also be blocked off, with a no-stopping zone in the area.

Please drive with care to ensure everyone's safety.
