The popular Champlain Lookout and a section of the Champlain Parkway in Gatineau Park will be off limits to vehicles and cyclists on weekdays for the next four weeks.

The National Capital Commission says starting on Monday, the areas will be closed on weekdays to allow for the competition of landscaping work in the area.

Between Monday and Friday, the Champlain Lookout and the Champlain Parkway from the Etienne Brule Lookout and the Champlain Lookout will be closed to all traffic, including bicycles.

The lookout and parkways will reopen to users and the Gatineau Park shuttle bus on weekends.
