Westside Road reopens

Westside road will be completely open to traffic in both directions, as of 7 p.m. tonight (Friday).

The closures at La Casa and Cinnabar Creek will be removed and motorists will be able to travel north and south, according to Central Okanagan Emergency Operations.

The road was closed since Monday due to the Shelter Cove wildfire.

The emergency centre advises motorists to watch for and give way to any emergency vehicles or first responders that are still working on the fire.

Meanwhile, an evacuation order has been lifted, but an evacuation alert remains in place for approximately 70 properties in the area. Residents should be prepared to leave on short notice should conditions with the fire change.
