Notice: Update on roads impacted by flooding

The County has issued an update on local roads impacted by high water levels.

-- Long Point Road is now open to the government dock.
-- Cressy Lakeside Road is restricted to one lane, with shoreline work in progress. Waves have caused erosion near the edge of the pavement in several areas.
-- Walbridge Circle is closed to local traffic only. Heavy trucks are not permitted.

There is also water over several roads in The County, including:

-- Winns Drive
-- Wesley Acres Road
-- Hiscock Shores
-- Hennessy Street (at the end of the street near the last two houses)
-- County Road 28 (at the bridge off County Road 62)
-- North Big Island Road (north end, east of Caughey Road)
-- Sunrise Drive

All areas are posted with water over road signs. Residents should use caution when driving roads along the shoreline, and limit the use of these areas.

Roads crews continue to monitor road conditions in low lying areas. Further closures and/or restrictions may be necessary if roads become unsafe for passage due to water levels. Drivers must obey all marked signage and road barricades. It is illegal and dangerous to drive on closed roads.
