The Skutz Falls Forest Service Road will be closed to all users from mid September until early October.
It’s so the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations can replace an aging bridge.
The existing 53-metre-long steel and wood bridge is 30 years old and spans the Cowichan River.
It’s located at the zero-kilometre mark of the Skutz Falls Forest Service Road, immediately south of the junction of Mayo Road and Riverbottom Road.
It’s being replaced for public safety reasons.
The Cowichan River Provincial Park will remain open to walk-in visitors and all the campgrounds and day-use areas within the park will operate as usual.
