  • Hawthorne Ave
  • Dahl Road
  • Donlyn Avenue
  • Marion Road – Wells line to Campbell
  • Campbell Road – Interprovincial to Dixon
  • Arnold Road
  • Wells line – McDermott to Marion
  • Downes Road – Clearbrook to Gladwin Road
  • Downes Road at Townline Road – single lane closure due to down wires

In addition, all of the city’s 192 parks and trails are closed to allow staff to survey the damage.
