Parts of two roads in the Cowichan Valley remain closed due to flooding.

According to Drive BC, Cowichan Bay Road is closed in both directions due to flooding between Tzoualem Road/ Cowichan Bay Road and Highway 1 (Trans-Canada Highway). The road will remain closed until further notice.

To the east of that area, Tzouhalem Road is also closed in both directions, between Joe Road and Samuel Road, due to flooding.

Environment Canada’s forecast shows rain continuing into next week in Duncan.
