Rain causes flooding on low-lying Toronto highway ramps

Aug 2 2020, 5:11 pm

A summer rainstorm caused flooding ramps leading to some of Toronto’s highways, and police are warning drivers to be careful.

A giant puddle formed on the Park Lawn Road on-ramp to the westbound Gardiner Expressway Sunday morning, which prompted the Toronto Police Service to ask drivers to avoid “low-lying roadways.”

Police also reported water was pooling on the Don Valley Parkway southbound ramp to Bloor Street, and some cars apparently stalled because of the high water level.

Environment Canada says there’s a risk of a thunderstorm Sunday afternoon, and that the wet weather will probably persist until Wednesday. Check out Daily Hive’s weather page for the latest forecast updates.
