Deer Park Forestry Service road closed after part of the road slid into the lake

The Deer Park Forestry Service road has been closed after heavy water flow caused part of the road to slide into the lake.

The RDCK says it happened at kilometre 7.2, and the road has been deemed unsafe for travel by a geotechnical expert.

18 full time residents of Deer Park are affected by the closure, as well as property owners in Renata.

The road is expected to be closed for at least the next couple of days, and the RDCK is working on helping the residents affected.
