Fire damage closes KLO trail foot bridge

Damaged bride was closed earlier this year due to flooding concerns in KLO Creek.

Kelowna’s parks department says a foot bridge on the KLO trail damaged by fire will remain closed until it can be repaired.

The bridge, one of three built in cooperation with the Friends of the South Slopes in 2010, was closed earlier this month due to flooding concerns along KLO Creek. The fire damage to the bridge was discovered last week.

The KLO trail head is located east of Field Road on the south side of McCulloch Road. The pedestrian bridge is the first bridge encountered after leaving the parking area off McCulloch Road.

The closure will remain in effect as city staff determine options to repair the bridge.
