Mission Greenway closed

A section of the Mission Creek Greenway has been closed due to the rapid rise in the water level and flow of Mission Creek.

Regional District Communications Officer Bruce Smith says, “Until conditions return to a safe level and it’s safe for our staff to assess trail conditions, the complete Phase 2 section of the Greenway corridor is closed from the Hollywood Road south entrance of Scenic Canyon Regional Park to the end of the trail off Field Road."  

"The north creek-side section of the Greenway along Phase 1 from Lakeshore through Mission Creek Regional Park and the south trail between Lakeshore and Casorso Road are still open.  We’re urging people to use extreme caution and keep away from the banks due to slippery conditions, possible erosion and the potential for a rapid rise in water levels and increased flow resulting from the overnight and forecast rainfall", Smith added.

The Greenway trail underpass at the Casorso Road bridge remains closed.  Pedestrians and cycles are asked to use caution and only cross Casorso Road when it is safe.  Motorists are also asked to watch for Greenway users who may be crossing the road in this area while the underpass is closed.
