Been a long haul but looks ohhh so worth it !!
Come back when you have something apart from a computer generated cartoon.-the road should be great but cartoons don't show much.
Thanks for posting, Suite. I had a look around at other sites to see a bit more about this project. It looks like the lakeside residents will have traffic peace and through traffic can make better time. Drive BC will keep people up to date on road conditions as usual.
It does not look like you traveled that road much - there were practically no lakeside (definitely no lakefront) residents on the section that skirted the lake. The road has moved up to the top of the hill and is now behind the residential in Oyama with traffic going at over 100km/h. So it is probably going to be noisier than when is was on the east side. So maybe some lower traffic for the residents but not a good thing for the Farm Market in Oyama. One thing that it is going to do, is make it better for those that want to use Wood Lake for fishing and eliminate some of the really bad accidents with transport trucks we have had over the last 20 yrs.
The real winners will be the ones trying to get to and from Vernon for a meeting. Google maps is already showing the new alignment http://goo.gl/maps/eWK9S as for the cartoon - it is pretty accurate, complete with slow cars hogging the fast lane(-:
Thanks for posting cbaarch. it does look like a safer and more efficient route. I had to chuckle at the cars out in the fast lane, too.
Obvious question, why two "cartoon" CGI clips?? ... they are both identical, right?
Two different news articles, two different reporters, two different dates. No big deal.
Got ya! .. thanks for the update.
