Water-Logged Drive Heading South

The leading concern, however, heading into the evening, is a section of roadway underneath the railway bridge where at least 15 centimetres (6 inches) of water has managed to pool.

Highways signs have put up warning motorists, and while the signs say 70 kilometres-an-hour, many are wisely slowing down to avoid any hydroplaning.

Water began to flow over the highway early Tuesday afternoon, when a drainage culvert underneath the road became blocked, and the flow has only increased in the hours that have followed.

Residents living in the Edgewood Park Trailer Court, to the South, are seeing the very same water now travel some 1000 yards down the highway and on to their properties.

At least one mobile home owner is worried the continued deluge of water could compromised the foundation underneath his trailer.

The forecast is for cooler by Friday, although the melt could return, in earnest, by next week with temperatures forecast to jump into the ‘double digits.’
