Okanagan Shuswap Natural Resource District Road safety information

Those using Forest Service Roads and other resource roads should do so with caution. A Forest Service Road may be closed to vehicular access for safety or environmental reasons. These closures may be temporary in nature, so check back regularly for updated information.

Be advised that there may be instances where an event on a road or bridge has not yet been identified. As always, caution is advised on all roads and back-country travelers should be aware of rapidly changing weather and stream flows which may affect road conditions.
