WATCH: Washed Out Road Poses Safety Concern

A North Okanagan woman is concerned a local road has become a potential death trap. Part of Cooke Creek Forest Service Road east of Enderby was washed out by a debris slide earlier this month and now ends in a sharp drop off.
Laura Meechan is worried that there is no signage warning drivers and fears if nothing is done someone will be killed. The company says it only found out about the situation Tuesday and will be out Wednesday morning assessing the road and installing signage.

UPDATE: Tuesday the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations said the road was managed by Tolko.

The company promising to install signage the next day. After checking out the site, Tolko said it was not responsible for the part of the road that had been washed away.

The province now says that part of the road is licensed by BC Timber Sales. The province promising that BC Timber Sales would install signs by noon Thursday.
