Barricades and closure signs are being posted, and are expected to remain in place until the water recedes.

We are closely monitoring other underpasses and sections along the Mission Creek Greenway as the BC River Forecast Centre indicates that creeks are expected to rise due to rainfall over the weekend, reads a release from the Regional District of Central Okanagan (RDCO).

People are reminded to stay away from creek banks during spring runoff.
