Right - Sign on eastbound Hwy 5A & Hwy 97C departing Merritt advising motorists to check their fuel. Although this sign specifically refers to the lack of services on the Coquihalla Highway (Hwy 5), motorists should note that there are also no services along Hwy 5A between Merritt and Princeton or along Hwy 97C between Merritt and Peachland either. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Electronic sign showing the closure status of major highway routes departing Merritt. Signs such as this are placed at strategic points along the British Columbia highway system, so that motorists can plan their journey through some of the high mountain passes located between Merritt, Kelowna and Vancouver.

Right - Green guide sign on Hwy 5A & Hwy 97C at the end of Coldwater Road in Merritt. This sign provides directions to the nearby junctions of Hwy 8 & Hwy 5. Curiously, there is no mention of Hwy 97C on this sign, and it is implied that Hwy 5A only travels south from Merritt. In fact, Hwy 5A also extends northerly from Merritt to Kamloops. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Facing west along Hwy 5A & Hwy 97C in Downtown Merritt. Note the Hwy 8 Junction sign at left.

Hwy 97C continues straight ahead concurrently with Hwy 8, which begins at this intersection. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Hwy 8 continues west to Spences Bridge while Hwy 97C turns north towards Logan Lake and Cache Creek. Hwy 5A turns right onto Voght Street and heads north towards Kamloops. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

At the junction, Hwy 5A turns left and heads southeast towards Princeton concurrently with Hwy 97C. At right, the route of Hwy 8 begins and heads west towards Spences Bridge concurrently with Hwy 97C. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Approaching the eastern terminus of Hwy 8 at Voght Street (Hwy 5A North) in Downtown Merritt. Hwy 97C continues straight ahead towards Kelowna concurrently with Hwy 5A South. Ultimately, Hwy 5A turns off of Hwy 97C towards Princeton at a highway junction located about 27 km southeast of Merritt. At one time, the Okanagan Connector between Merritt and Peachland was envisioned to become an eastern extension of Hwy 8, but ultimately, the highway was designated as Hwy 97C.
