"With a high of +16 today the run off is in full swing," they wrote. "There are several roads though out the South Peace where the water has jumped the ditches. Please drive with care watching for flooding roads."

DriveBC indicates the flooding lasts 0.6 km, and recommends drivers "reduce speed coming up to the bridge."

DriveBC also reports flooding on Highway 97 heading out of Dawson towards Chetwynd, between 227 Rd and Rd 94 for 3.4 km.
