Glacier Creek Road repaired

Forestry road to Jumbo Pass and and Monica Meadows trailheads are back in service.

A major washout that had closed Glacier Creek Road has been repaired. Glacier Creek Road is east of Duncan Lake and  leads to various trail heads such as Jumbo Pass and Monica Meadows.

According to a post on the Lardeau Valley LINKS blog on July 13, “The whole river was diverted due to a rock slide further up and the river has completed eradicated the road just after the bridge.”

The Selkirk district forestry office near Nelson said the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations road engineers have been directing contractors throughout the repairs at the 28.5 km washout. By Friday morning the road was back in service with only minor delays expected.
