Road restrictions due to flooding

High winds and high water levels today have impacted two local roads.

− Long Point Road is closed at civic number 6065.

− Cressy Lakeside Road is restricted to local traffic only. Waves are splashing over the road, depositing debris and causing erosion near the edge of the pavement in several areas.

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.
