Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal
The Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal is reminding motorists to drive with care during the wet weather and to call 511 or visit www.511.gov.pe.ca for the latest road closures, says Minister Robert Vessey.
The heavy rain is causing localized flooding and culvert washouts, particularly in West Prince, said the minister. Drivers should slow down, stay away from flooded areas, and be prepared for detours.
Road closures as of 3 p.m. include:
Argyle Road - Alberton
Albion Road - Alberton
Harper Road - Tignish
Jerry Road - Bloomfield
Old Palmer Road - St Louis
Richards Road - Springhill
Centerline Road - Alma
Allen Road - Arlington
It is anticipated that other roads may need to be closed throughout the day and overnight. The latest closures can be found by calling 5-1-1 or visiting www.511.gov.pe.ca.
