A wash-out has closed the 201 Forest Service Road that serves as a secondary route between Penticton and Kelowna.

The road was closed Monday at the 56.5-kilometre marker, according to a release from the B.C. Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations.

Recreation sites north of the wash-out and north of the Greyback Forest Service Road are now only accessible from Highway 33. Anything to the south is still accessible from Penticton.

 

Ministry crews are working to reopen the road as soon as possible. For information on other recreation sites in the area, visit www.sitesandtrailsbc.ca.
