It has been a long day for works crews in Innisfil.
They continue to respond to isolated flooding caused by mild temperatures and rain. The public is asked to exercise caution around the following locations:
- Belle Aire Beach Road and Maple Road Area (where a road closure remains in effect)
- Buchanan Street (where a road closure remains in effect)
- Gilford Road, East of Highway 11
- Sections of Highway 89 and 20th Sideroad
- Sections of the 13th Line
Operations teams from the Town of Innisfil are pumping water out of the affected areas and will continue to do so until roads are clear. Roads that have seen the most significant flooding will be addressed first before crews move onto other areas.

Residents are advised to avoid driving through flooded areas and roadways and are encouraged to park elsewhere. Parking tickets will not be issued for those who are affected.
Due to the weather and flooding in multiple areas, all branches of the Innisfil ideaLAB and Library will close at 4 p.m. (the Churchill branch is already closed.) The Rizzardo Health and Wellness Centre will remain open as scheduled.
