With the rainfall easing late in the day, Alouette River water levels on 224th Street, between 132 and 136 avenues, receded and the road was reopened at approximately 9 p.m. Monday.

Heavy rain caused flooding on 224th St. earlier in the day, and it was closed between 132 and 136 avenues.

“Please follow all traffic signs and flagging personnel as directed around the closure,” the city said on its website.

“This closure is weather dependent, and will be in effect until the heavy rains subside. The operations department has posted the road closure for the section of 224th St. from 132 to 136 avenues and will monitor levels on that section until the water recedes.”


The operations department was also monitoring the water levels on 132nd Ave. between 216 and 224 streets.

Periods of rain are expected throughout the rest of the week, according to Environment Canada.
