A special weather statement has been issued for the area, with showers and thunderstorms expected to continue throughout the day. Residents are advised of the following temporary road closures due to localized flooding from heavy rainfall:

  • Haskill Road (South of Marsh Road)  
  • Mill Street South (from Shuter Street to Madison Street)

Please avoid these areas until the road closures are lifted and drive slowly on all other roadways as water on the roads will cause slippery conditions and, in some cases, erosion of the pavement. 

Additional road closures may be required today. Please continue to check this page for regular updates. You can also receive up-to-the-minute road closure information through the Municipal511 tool, available at porthope.ca/roads-division

Residents are also reminded that portions of the Waterfront Trail are currently closed due to exceedingly high water levels and damage in the form of path washouts caused by erosion. Stay clear of the closed trails, and avoid all other waterways.
