Flooding on Cowichan Bay Road as highways contractors urging motorist to fund alternate routes to and from the bay.

Mainroad South Island Contracting Ltd. reported at around 1 p.m. Wednesday Cow Bay Road is shut from the Trans-Canada Highway to the intersection with Tzouhalem Road — at the lawn-tennis club — until further notice.

Watch our website for a reopening notice from Mainroad.

Cow Bay Road was resurfaced last year as officials grapple with drainage issues along the roadway marked with gates warning of flooding.
