Mission Creek Greenway Casorso Underpass Open

June 27, 2013 - 3:02 PM

The Mission Creek Greenway underpass at the Casorso Road Bridge is open again for use.

Now that the level of Mission Creek has dropped again, Regional Parks Services crews have cleaned up the trail and removed silt and debris that collected since the underpass was closed last week.  Once again the route is open for Greenway users.

The trail access under the south end of the Gordon Drive Bridge is at a lower elevation and remains closed until creek water levels drop further.  Greenway patrons may continue to use the north-side creek underpass at Gordon Drive which remains open. 

People are reminded that water levels may rise unexpectedly and they, children and pets should stay safely back from creek banks, which may be slippery or undercut by recent high water levels and flows.

Boaters and those using boat launches and docks along area lakes are advised to keep their speed and wakes down close to the shoreline to prevent wave erosion.  They should also continue to watch for floating debris that may be in Central Okanagan lakes as a result of the recent high flows from area creeks.
