Watermain break in Penticton along Highway 97

The break is located directly in front of the Ramada hotel

Expect delays while Penticton work crews dig up and repair a burst water main in front of the Ramada hotel.

The water main break is between Westminster Avenue and Comox Street on Eckhardt Avenue, and traffic has been reduced to a single lane in either direction.

The City of Penticton is warning drivers to slow down and to watch for traffic controllers along the road.

Crews have rolled out an excavator to dig up the water main, and the city stated in a news release that they are aiming to complete the repairs with minimal disruption to nearby homes and businesses.
