PETERS – Frustrating traffic delays are the exception to the rule in Kamloops

ON WEDNESDAY, it was an overturned lumber truck.

The incident happened at almost the worst possible location – where Battle Street, Columbia Street, Valleyview Drive and the Yellowhead Highway all come together.

Thursday, there was a gas line struck on West Victoria. The response to the incident led to West Victoria being shut down in both directions.

Even though it’s the site of a big construction project, it is still relied upon as a primary route to get over the Overlanders Bridge every day.

So for a second day in a row, the afternoon commute was messed up.
