"The access road into McKinnon Flats will be closed from September 22-26 to conduct road repairs.
The area on the Bow River southeast of Calgary is heavily used by boaters, anglers and outfitters as a take-out point for boats.
Rocky View County, the owner of the road, fully supports the temporary closure decision in the interest of public safety. Beginning on September 22, and until road repairs are complete, access to McKinnon Flats will be barred with a “no entry” marker. Public access and use is not allowed during this time and users are advised to arrange alternative take-out points for the duration of the closure.
These repairs will include reshaping the existing road, culvert installation, and placement of gravel. The repairs will enhance the resiliency of the road to withstand weather events and improve access for anglers, outfitters and the public alike.
Wishing you safe and enjoyable travels on the river!"
