Mass Flooding in Hamilton, ON
So I was trying to drive from Hamilton to Burlington today and got on the Red Hill Expressway, which was a little flooded where I got on. Then I got close to where I needed to get off and came to a complete stop. The highway was flooded in about 3 feet of water, can’t go forward, can’t go backwards. Eventually I was able to turn around and drive the wrong way on the highway, drive the wrong way up an on ramp and make it to Centennial Pkwy, unfortunately that was flooded and closed where I needed to go.
So I drove all the way to Fruitland Rd, and got on the QEW there, only to sit in traffic for an hour and eventually notice that the other side of the QEW was closed because of flooding and my side was extremely slow because we had to drive through some flooding (nothing compared to the 2+ feet we had to go through on the Red Hill. People were playing football on the QEW beside us! Which probably surprised the big rig that went through the flooding and came upon them. Not a good idea to play football on a major highway, even if you think it’s closed for flooding!
