Dilworth and Harvey once again tops Kelowna's most dangerous intersections

Most dangerous intersection

Vehicle crashes at Kelowna's most dangerous intersections rose substantially in 2021 compared to the year prior, showing the significant impact the pandemic had on vehicle crashes in the region.

According to recently released ICBC data, the intersection of Dilworth Drive and Harvey Avenue was the most dangerous intersection in the city in 2021 for the second year in a row, with 113 crashes throughout the year. Of these, 43 crashes involved injuries or fatalities.

While the same intersection topped the list of most crashes in the city in 2020 as well, just 79 crashes occurred there that year. This reduction in crashes in 2020 is likely at least partially related to the COVID-19 pandemic, as more people were staying at home to slow the spread of the virus.

The top 10 most dangerous intersections in Kelowna saw 717 crashes in 2021, compared to just 570 in 2020. In 2019, prior to any COVID restrictions or precautions, there were 721 crashes among Kelowna's top 10 most dangerous intersections.

It will be no surprise to Kelowna drivers that the top five most dangerous intersections are located along Harvey Avenue/Highway 97.

Last year, the Spall Road and Harvey Avenue intersection has the second most crashes, at 83, while Cooper Road and Harvey Avenue had 79. Gordon Drive and Harvey Avenue had 78 crashes in 2021 while Banks Road and Highway 97 saw 71.

All of these intersections saw reductions in crashes from 2020 to 2021, except for the Banks-Highway 97, which saw four more crashes in 2020.
