Stair Replacement Closes section of Mission Creek Greenway

RDCO-logo-2

Starting tomorrow Tuesday, October 8th a short section of the Mission Creek Greenway will be closed each weekday until approximately late November.

Crews will be replacing five sets of aging crib stairs along a steep, half-kilometre section of the recreational trail upstream from the Smoothing Stones Bridge to make it safer for use.  This requires the section to be closed each Monday morning through Friday afternoon, including evenings.

 While the stairs are being replaced, this section of the Greenway will be open for visitors from late Friday afternoon through each weekend including the Thanksgiving and Remembrance Day holidays.

 Other areas of the 16.5 kilometre Greenway trail are not affected and remain open for use.  And residents are encouraged to explore any of the 30 regional parks that protect over 2,100 hectares of land across the Central Okanagan.
