Lake Country snarl fixed

Good news for motorists who regularly travel through Lake Country along Highway 97.

The traffic jam is almost over.

A traffic snafu has significantly slowed traffic through the community since Wednesday morning.

The problem was centered around the traffic lights at Highway 97 and Beaver Lake Road.

Contractors with the Ministry of Transportation have been there since Thursday, trying to determine what was causing the traffic light to change more frequently, allowing only handful of vehicles to cross the intersection.

Bumper-to-bumper traffic has been reported daily since the issue surfaced.

Ministry officials say the cause of the problem was detected this morning and should be fixed today.

The problem was with the detection loops in the system.

It's not known whether the problem resulted from Tuesday's windstorm, which knocked out power to a large chunk of Lake Country.
