Two Fish Creek trails now open

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The city of Fort St. John announced today that 2 of the Fish Creek trails are now open.

Wind and rain caused extensive damage to the trails and needed to be closed to remove hazardous trees in the area.

The city says crews will continue to work on the trails for another week or so. The Silviculture trail will remain closed due to being washed out and having lots of debris making it unsafe.

Chris Murphy, Grounds Manager with they are glad to be getting somewhere and keeping citizens safe.

“We are very pleased that the contractor was able to work this quickly to get the trails safe for community use. The unstable ground from the rain combined with the wind meant a number of trees posed a risk to the safety of citizens.”
