High winds and high water levels Monday have impacted two local roads.

Long Point Road is closed at civic number 6065 and Cressy Lakeside Road is restricted to local traffic only.

“Waves are splashing over the road, depositing debris and causing erosion near the edge of the pavement in several areas,” said Mark Kerr, the County’s new communications and media co-ordinator.

Residents are advised to use caution when driving roads along the shoreline, and limit the use of these areas.

Kerr said County roads crews continue to monitor road conditions in-low lying areas.
“Further closures or restrictions may be necessary if roads become unsafe for passage due to water levels,” he said. “Drivers must obey all marked signage and road barricades. It is illegal and dangerous to drive on closed roads.

    This is not a new occurrence. Climate is cyclical. And since our Sun has now reached half of its life span Earth temperatures will continue to increase until it is uninhabitable.

    Donald Trump should come to the county to see what global warming is doing to water levels in Lake Ontario
