Yes, I support an underpass at Ross Street – although our community may choose to delay when it is built.
A grade separated crossing of CP Rail’s line through downtown Salmon Arm has long been under consideration. The relative need for it was delayed by CP’s double-tracking project, but the construction of an underpass will eventually become a necessity.
In order to access funding opportunities from upper levels of government and CP, our community must develop a ready-to-go plan. Our community may choose to further delay construction through a referendum, but be clear that a “no” is only a delay.
