Roads reopen in the West Kootenay after being washed out

A couple of local roads have reopened.

The Deer Park Forest Service Road is open again to vehicle traffic, after heavy water flow caused part of the road to slide in to the lake a couple of weeks ago.

Hanson Road, south of Ainsworth, has also reopened...that road was also heavily damaged due to heavy water flow in the vicinity.

The RDCK says they're grateful to personnel from the Ministry of Forest, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, staff from Kalesnikoff lumber, staff from Yellowhead Road and Bridge and contractors who worked to remediate the roads.

    This is the feel-good video you have to watch today! Be honest, when was the last time you saw such gorgeous images? The video is phenomenal and that song from First Aid Kit is a perfect soundtrack for such a visual feast.
  • Dude Perfect Glow in the Dark Trick Shots

    We love the Dude Perfect videos. This one's pretty neat as it has been filmed with some LEDs and glow-in-the-dark objects. Perfect, as always!
