Road Conditions and Closures
Due to flooding and severe washouts, the following roads have been CLOSED:
Milburn Road is closed due to a combination of a severe washout and a flooded
road section. The washout is approximately 1km East of Gelert Road and the flooded section is approximately 2km East of Gelert Road. Residents should not
attempt to drive through these areas.
The Following roads will remain open with restricted passage. Drivers should use
caution and watch for signage and markers:
Severe washout where the Haliburton Rail Trail crosses Geeza Road. The
road is passable; however, drivers should use caution. The washout is
marked with orange pylons.
The road is partially flooded approximately 500m from Deep Bay Road, with only
one lane passable. The flooded area is marked with orange pylons and signage.
Drivers should use caution while traveling in this area and yield to oncoming traffic as there is only one lane available. These road closures and restrictions will remain in effect until road conditions are deemed appropriate for reopening.
As information to residents, many shoulders and hills have washed out from the significant rain events in the past 72 hours. Staff continue to ensure culverts remain functional and handle the volume of rain received and in the forecast. Repairs will be made as weather and conditions allow.
We want to remind the public to use caution around area lakes, rivers, creeks and other
water sources such as ditches, as high water levels and swift currents can create unstable conditions.
Avoid driving on any roadways that are underwater, as road conditions may be unstable
