The City of Courtenay has shut down a portion of the Rotary Riverside Trail.

Spokesperson Anne Guillo says it’s the trail that runs along the Puntledge River.

Guillo says the city is getting a geotechnical and structural report on the section of trail to determine what steps can be taken to repair it.

She says in the meantime, it’s important that people obey the signage and avoid that area of the trail.
