**Updated** High water levels along St. John River lead to several road closures

High water levels along the St. John River basin have led to several road closures.

New Brunswick's Emergency Measures Organization says Route 690 is closed between Route 105 in McGowans Corner and Route 670 in Lakeville Corner due to flooding.

It's the second time in the past few weeks the road has been shut down, and there's no indication how long this latest closure will last.

Also in the Fredericton area, Ferry Road in Jemseg is closed, and Route 105 is partially covered by water at several locations between Maugerville and Jemseg.

Further upriver, Route 105 remains closed in Medford – between Tobique First Nation and Drummond – due to erosion caused by high water levels.

Officials say water levels will remain high over the coming days, with between 30 and 35 millimetres of rain forecast between now and Wednesday.

Residents living near waterways are asked to keep an eye on water levels as situations can change quickly.

EMO is also asking drivers to keep an eye out for wildlife such as moose, which have been seen on roads as they seek higher ground.
