Flooding at the Kiskatinaw Bridge.

With runoff from the warm weather, various roads in the South Peace are seeing water come over them, including Highway 97.

In a recent Facebook post, Caribou Road Services noted the Kiskatinaw Bridge as an area seeing water flood the road.

"With a high of +16 today the run off is in full swing," they wrote. "There are several roads though out the South Peace where the water has jumped the ditches. Please drive with care watching for flooding roads."

DriveBC indicates the flooding lasts 0.6 km, and recommends drivers "reduce speed coming up to the bridge."

DriveBC also reports flooding on Highway 97 heading out of Dawson towards Chetwynd, between 227 Rd and Rd 94 for 3.4 km.
