Road opens in South Canoe

City reports one-lane access for Okanagan Avenue East.

In an update on city roads provided today, May 10, by the City of Salmon Arm, the city has announced that Okanagan Avenue in South Canoe (off 60th Street NE) has been opened to single lane traffic. An overflowing East Canoe Creek had washed out the culvert crossing, resulting in about six properties being cut off.

“City staff have successfully installed a temporary culvert and constructed a single lane access to this area, re-establishing connection to these properties,” the city update states.

The report also notes that in the 1400 block of Foothill Road, Hobson Creek is still flowing strongly and the culvert on the road has now been washed out.

“Staff are working with an engineering consultant to install a new temporary culvert and re-establish the road. The temporary berm along the road will remain in place until the flows subside and restoration work can begin.”

As for 42 Street NW in Gleneden, the city states that flows from Syphon Creek have washed out the culvert crossing, resulting in approximately nine properties being cut off. Staff are working to install a temporary culvert.
