Travellers are advised that the Mabel Lake Forest Service Road in the Lumby area will be closed at the 32-kilometre mark from Monday, Oct. 10 until Oct. 31.

The closure is to allow for replacement of the bridge over Tsiuis Creek to improve public safety.

The Mabel Lake area will still be accessible from the south (Lumby-Mabel Lake Road), from the west (Enderby-Mabel Lake Road) and from the north (Highway 1/Three Valley Gap).

The Mabel Lake Forest Service Road is part of British Columbia’s 55,000-kilometre Forest Service road network that provides access to British Columbia’s backcountry.
