Mission Creek Greenway gets a pruning

Mission Creek Greenway, from the Ziprick Road entrance upstream to the Hollywood Road substation, is having its vegetation pruned.

  • Oct. 17, 2016 6:00 p.m.

From Oct. 17 for approximately two weeks, sections of the Mission Creek Greenway may be periodically closed for hazard tree removal, pruning and vegetation maintenance.

This work along the FortisBC power line is taking place along the Greenway trail on the north and east side of Mission Creek between the Ziprick Road entrance upstream to the FortisBC Hollywood Road substation.

The Regional District of Central Okanagan asks that for their safety and that of the work crew, Greenway users should obey any barricades, signs and flag people and stay out of any closed areas.

For information on FortisBC’s vegetation maintenance program, please visit fortisbc.com.
