WINNIPEG - If you’re on the move this morning in a vehicle outside the city, you’d be wise to check your route for flooding.

The province’s highways department said this morning that there’s water over the road at the junction of the Perimeter Highway (101) and Hwy. 59 north, and that caution is advised.

It’s not the only area for road flooding. There’s water over the road on Hwy. 200 at Emerson, and also on Hwy. 12 near Ladywood, north of Beausejour.

As well, shoulder damage is reported with soft and muddy conditions on Hwy. 75’s southbound lanes at Glenlea, north of St. Agathe. The areas there are signed and marked.

Other trouble spots related to weekend weather and water on the road are on Hwy. 209 (from 201 to Gardenton), Hwy. 302 north of Hwy. 1 East and Hwy. 302 from Hwy. 12 to Hwy. 303), Hwy. 307 (from Betula Lake to Hwy. 309), Hwy. 313 (east of Hwy. 315 and also east of Hwy. 11).

As well, Hwy. 218 was closed on Sunday from Hwy. 201 to Hwy. 200 because of water on the road.

The prudent thing in each case where roads remain open is reduced speed and caution.
