The Gatineau Park parkway network (Gatineau, Champlain, Fortune Lake and Philippe Lake parkways) is closing for the season.

The National Capital Commission will have gates up on the roadways as of 6 p.m., Friday.

The early closure is a result of the special weather statement issued Friday morning by Environment Canada, as its expecting a mix of snow, ice pellets and freezing rain to fall on the area over the weekend.

Cyclists, in-line skaters and pedestrians are asked to exercise caution.
