More than 20 roads in the M.D. of Smoky River are closed as crews deal with flooding caused by spring run-off.

“It is not recommended to travel through any water on a roadway as the road may be washed out,” says Kevin Cymbaluk, director of operations.

“Be prepared to use alternate routes and watch for new traffic control devices in the region.”

The M.D. released the message on its website April 22.

“Please proceed with caution when traveling on M.D. roads,” Cymbaluk says.

Landfills in Jean Cote, Guy and Whitemud are also closed until further notice.

“Our public works employees are working diligently to assist with flooding throughout the M.D. of Smoky River,” Cymbaluk says.

“We request that the public stay back and avoid the areas where crews are working, both for their safety and yours.

“We appreciate your co-operation.”
