WINNIPEG – Many rural roads have been closed in Manitoba due to flood water on the road and washouts.

  • PR 416, for 2.5 kilometres north of PR 415, due to a washout.
  • PR 579, 13 kilometres west of Highway 16 for one kilometre, due to a washout.

Cautions:

  • PR 481, three kilometres north of Highway 68 north of Eddystone, due to rough sections.
