Kawartha Lakes Road Conditions Update

Kawartha Lakes – The widespread localized flooding we are seeing this week is due to the high rainfall and snow melt on top of frozen ground. It has created ‘flash flooding’ across the municipality. We have all staff resources fully deployed and are using every possible resource to address the flooding.

The City of Kawartha Lakes Public Works Department wishes to remind residents that some local roads have been closed due to flooding and washouts. We recommend that the public approach all rural roads with caution as the roads may be iced over or there may be water running across the road. Residents should avoid driving on roads submerged in water as it is difficult to judge the depth of the water or any erosion that may have occurred.
