The City of Montreal has closed Camillien-Houde Way on Mount Royal to drivers as it secures cliffs on top of the mountain.

In a statement Tuesday, the city says the road is off-limits to cars starting at Mont-Royal Avenue but there are detours in place.

Camillien-Houde Way remains accessible to pedestrians and cyclists.

Remembrance Road, which also snakes through the mountain, remains open from Côte-des-Neiges Road to Beaver Lake and Maison Smith parking lots.

Montrealers can still access the Côte-des-Neiges and Mont-Royal cemeteries, according to the city.

The city has not indicated when the road will reopen to traffic or how long the work is expected to last.
