1905: March 25, 1909 - Road on West Shore of Wood Lake

When the canal between Wood Lake and Long Lake (Kalamalka) was completed in 1908, the water level of Wood Lake dropped, exposing a margin around the lake. It was on this margin that a new road was built in 1909 replacing a portion of the old Mission Road. This road became Highway 5 which was later renamed Highway 97.
