Special attention will be given to the tricky intersection of Highway 97-Glenmore Road-Beaver Lake Road at a Lake Country transportation planning workshop on June 19.

Interested citizens are invited to give their input at the 7-9 p.m. session at the Lake Country Seniors Centre.

The workshop will use what's called a world-cafe format, where people gather at tables to discuss issues and then share their ideas with the wider group near the end of the meeting.

Input will be considered for the Highway 97 Lake Country Transportation Planning Study, the two-year process started last year to identify what is needed to improve safety and flow on Highway 97 from Duck Lake to Lodge Road.

Improvements are scheduled to be implemented in the winter of 2019-20.

The focus is on the 97-Glenmore-Beaver Lake intersection because it is Lake Country's busiest, includes steep hill approaches on both Glenmore and Beaver Lake roads and speed limit reductions.

Space at the workshop is limited, so those interested in attending are asked to register by June 18 at 97lakecountrystudy@gov.bc.ca.
