Minden Hills has announced that Upper Dutch Road will be closed due to multiple days of heavy rainfall. The road is closed to traffic from the intersection of County Road 121.

In a press release issued at 5:45 p.m. on Sept. 23, the Township urged caution “around area lakes, rivers, creeks and other water sources such as ditches, as high water levels and swift currents can create unstable conditions.”

Portions of the Riverwalk in downtown Minden are currently underwater and the Township currently advises against using the the Riverwalk and Boardwalk at this time.  
 
Minden Hills said they warn residents in areas near high water to take precautions to protect property that may be at risk.
