More flooding, road closures, in Huron Shores

Friday, May 16, 2014   by: Staff



Due to the heavy precipitation in the past 24 hours, the depth of the water over Cameron Road in the Dayton area has increased. 
Public Works has advised that Cameron Road is now closed to thru traffic and Bolton River Road remains closed
Although Public Works is continuing to patrol and advise the public as soon as possible, with the long Victoria Day weekend upon us, motorists are urged to drive with extreme caution and watch for road irregularities.
In addition to the high levels of precipitation currently being experienced, effects to the Municipal road system, due to the September 2013 flood event, continue to appear.

The flooding on the North Shores of Lake Huron is partially caused due to all the gates at the Soo Rapids that was wide open in Sept. Along with all the rain in the fall and all the snow and run offs and record rain so far this spring has caused high water levels. Now they have opened more gates?? Is this necessary??

REALLY Cel Wood REALLY? You believe flooding inland of Lake Huron is caused by the gates being open in the Soo? WOW!

maybe because of all the snow and the culverts being half full of debris.... Huron does not flow inland. It is spring run off and there was too much water for the culverts. Our locks have nothing to do with inland flooding off Huron.

Even though I don't believe that opening of the gates at Soo Locks is the reason for the flooding in Huron Shores, why open all these gates in the spring break-up?. It's not like Superior can't handle a little more water. Why not wait till the spring run-off has subsided? Probably idiots in control of the locks. (This would make a great Sunday Cartoon !!!)

Huron Shores is a municipality stretching from just outside of Bruce Mines, up and around Thessalon and over to Iron Bridge. The concern deals with Cameron Rd and Bolton Rd which are around Bright Lake. An inland lake getting water from Harris creek and many other little streams. It's spring run off people! Has nothing to do with Lake Huron or the Sault Locks. Learn the geography around you before you comment people. It really makes you look like idiots rambling on and off topic about nothing relevant to the article.
