A gas leak rerouted traffic on Hwy 97 in OK Falls

Gas leak cause of reroute

A gas leak briefly stopped traffic on Highway 97 in Okanagan Falls Wednesday morning. 

Okanagan Falls Fire Department members were on scene redirecting traffic for approximately 1.5 hours on Wednesday morning in the main area of town near Cedar Street. 

Fire chief Rob Oliver said the problem began when a contractor doing construction nearby thought his gas was off, but it wasn't. 

"The contractor didn't check with Fortis first," Oliver said. "He hit the gas meter."

Traffic was rerouted, and Oliver says everything is fine now. 

"They should have known better," he added.
