Mission Creek Greenway underpass closed

RDCO

Press release:

Rising water levels forced the closure of Gordon Drive bridge underpass along the Mission Creek Greenway.

The Regional District of Central Okanagan urges visitors to respect any barricades and closure signs posted at these locations as they will remain closed until waters recede.

Pedestrians and cyclists are asked to use caution and only cross Gordon Drive 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 trails are closed.

Regional Parks staff continues to monitor creek levels along the Mission Creek Greenway and Scenic Canyon regional park recreational corridor. 

People are reminded that during spring runoff water levels in area creeks may rise unexpectedly and they, children and pets should stay safely back from creek banks, which may be slippery or subject to erosion.

Boaters and those using Okanagan Lake boat launches are advised to watch for floating debris that may enter the lake as a result of the runoff.

There are more than 2,100 hectares of parkland available to discover in 30 regional and 20 RDCO community parks for visitors while practicing physical distancing.  Find all the locations at rdco.com/pickapark.
