Highway 97 North remains at singe-lane alternating north of Prince George

Highway 97 will remain at single-lane alternating at Summit Lake for some time yet.

A Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure spokesperson said Wednesday the stretch 29 kilometres north of the city, will remain in that state "until cleanup works are complete, which is anticipated to be later this week."

"Peoples' safety is our top priority, and we are doing everything possible to maintain safe road conditions," the spokesperson added.

A flagging crew has been in place since early Tuesday morning when flooding forced the stretch between Mitchell Road and Summit Lake Road to single-lane alternating.

"This appears to be due to heavy rains coupled with the frozen ground in the area. The water level has peaked and is starting to go down now," the spokesperson said.
