Clearwater businesses upset at roundabout proposal
The crossroads at Highway 5 in Clearwater are the gateway to Wells Provincial Park and the source of much of the town's business.
Now, local and the provincial officials are trying to make that intersection safer by getting rid of the intersection altogether.They're proposing a roundabout instead.
But some business owners aren't happy about that and they plan to fight it. Kym Jim is one of them. He attended a public meeting about the roundabout on the evening of Sept. 6.
The next morning he spoke with Daybreak host, Chris Walker.
Chris also spoke with Rick Blixrud. He's the Assistant Regional Director of the highways department in the Southern Interior.
