Yesterday we reported downed hydro wires (fallen branches), Otter Point Hydro Outage due to a tree down across wires.
Today, DriveBC is showing that traffic in that area is still impacted, or at least it was at 6:22 a.m., the time of their last report. UPDATE: SPN was notified by an Otter Point resident that by 5:50 a.m., saying that traffic was clear. This OVERRIDES the 6:22 a.m. update from DriveBC.
“Highway 14 Both directions – Hydro Lines Down from Kemp Lake Road, West of Sooke to Otter Point Road in Sooke (6.6 km). The road is reduced to single lane alternating traffic. Updated on Mon Jul 4 at 6:22 am PDT. (ID# 220306)”
