Rock slide prompts emergency road closure in Lake Country

Pelmewash Parkway is closed both ways following the Wednesday afternoon slide.

An emergency road closure is in effect for Pelmewash Parkway due to a Wednesday afternoon rock slide.

The District of Lake Country announced the full road closure shortly before 4 p.m. Feb. 3.

The rock slide took place near the recently installed canoe sculpture, located at the midpoint of the Pelmewash Parkway.

Photos taken by drivers in the area show rocks scattered across the width of the road, with multiple vehicles visible in the rubble.

No word on potential injuries has yet been reported. Traffic control is en route, and there is no estimated time of reopening at this time.
