PENTICTON, B.C. — The B.C. Ministry of Transportation will be holding a meeting here on July 11, to discuss plans to make Okanagan-area highways safer.

The South Okanagan Corridor Management Plan is aimed at reviewing the safety of Hwy. 97 from the U.S. border to the Deep Creek Bridge south of Peachland, Hwy. 3 from Keremeos to just east of Osoyoos, and Hwy. 3A from Keremeos to Keledan.

The B.C. Trucking Association (BCTA) is encouraging fleets that run those well-travelled highways to fill out the Ministry’s safety survey, and participate in the meeting, which is being held at the Chamber of Commerce at 888 Westminster Ave. West at 10:30 a.m.

Fleets that aren’t based in the Okanagan region, but travel that area frequently can obtain surveys by calling the BCTA office at 800-565-2282.
