Public advised to be safe on roads during heavy rainfall
  
The City of Toronto is advising motorists to take care on the roads during today's significant rainfall.

Transportation Services staff are working closely with Toronto Police and the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority to monitor low-lying areas where there is the potential for flooding.

The public should use caution when travelling in areas where flooding has been known to occur such as the lower portion of the Don Valley Parkway and the Bayview Extension/Rosedale Valley area. Motorists should choose alternative routes to avoid roads where flooding has taken place.

When roads are closed or blocked, Transportation Services staff adjusts signal timing to assist with traffic flow on alternative routes.

If you see a road where flooding has occurred, call 311.

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people. Toronto's government is dedicated to delivering customer service excellence, creating a transparent and accountable government, reducing the size and cost of government and building a transportation city. For information on non-emergency City services and programs, Toronto residents, businesses and visitors can dial 311, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
