Minor mudslide on Hwy 97

Emergency crews responded to a minor mudslide in Peachland Monday afternoon, causing some gridlock along Highway 97.

A witness says the slide at Highway 97 and Princeton Ave. was minor, largely affecting traffic due to the cleanup process, with a large puddle created in the slide.

It's not clear when the road is expected to be cleared up at this point.

Monday's slide marks the second this year, with a larger slide in January taking out a chunk of Renfrew Road. That section of road opened up to traffic again on Thursday last week.
