An outdoor destination in North Vancouver that is popular with both residents and tourists alike will be closing this week for repairs, according to officials.

On its website, the District of North Vancouver (DNV) has announced that beginning on September 30, the Lynn Canyon suspension bridge will be fully closed to allow crews to replace the decking on the bridge, as well as perform other required maintenance.

The DNV says that during the closure, alternate pedestrian routes will be available for those still looking to explore the area.

Officials expect the work to be completed — and the bridge to reopen — by late November of this year.

In the meantime, those looking for a similar suspension bridge experience can check out the Seymour River Suspension bridge, which spans across the Seymour River in the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve.

The bridge, which opened in December of last year, allows hikers, cyclists, and dog walkers to cross the Seymour River and reconnects the Twin Bridge Trail with the Fisherman’s Trail.

It is located 100 metres upstream of the old Twin Bridge, which was dismantled after it was permanently flooded in 2014 from a nearby rockslide into the river that raised water levels across much of the river system.
