Lynn Headwaters Road - CLOSED (indefinitely)
Heads up -
Effective tomorrow (Dec 1st) the road into Lynn Headwaters (i.e. everything past the yellow gate at Lynn Valley Road and Evelyn) will be CLOSED to vehicle traffic. Pedestrian and bike traffic will still be allowed.
Apparently the road is deteriorating and at risk of landslide where it goes through steeply sloped terrain, and immediate closure is necessary until a long term plan is identified and major upslope mitigation work can be done.
To say the least, this is going to have a huge impact on traffic since that cuts off a tonne of parking and Lynn Headwaters is a popular park. Apparently they are going to be allowing parking on neighbouring streets, but even if you're able to find parking there, it's still a 1-2km walk to the headwaters now.
