Melting Snow Causing Some Localized Flooding

In fact, several intersections around Fort St. John experiencing pooling water — one of the worst is on 102nd Avenue and 98th Street.

The melting snow is also causing some headaches on Highway 97 near the railway bridge, south of the city.


Yellowhead Road & Bridge crews are out trying to clear away water that managed to make its way across the highway.

Regional Ministry of Transportation Manager Scott Maxwell says a build-up of ice inside a drain under the roadway is causing water to come up over the highway.

Expect delays in the area as crew try to remedy the problem.
