Camillien-Houde Way, the popular winding road over Mount Royal, has been closed to traffic since this afternoon. 

The city said it closed the road because of work to "secure" a number of cliffs on the mountain's summit. 

Drivers can get to the parking lot near Beaver Lake from Remembrance Road by way of Côte-des-Neiges, as well as the Côte-des-Neiges and Mount Royal cemeteries. 

The city has not yet said when Camillien-Houde Way will reopen. 

Pedestrians and cyclists can continue to use the road, the city said.
