More on highway closure

Further to Kate's post below, this is what the Route 148 washout looked like on Saturday afternoon:

Washout on Hwy 148 at Therrien Rd after heavy storm on June 24, 2011.

It looks like a beaver dam in Gatineau Park burst to create a sudden surge of water that was too much for the culvert.

The Eardley-Masham road was still open at 14:30, but quite deep water was flowing over the pavement at the Masham end. Vehicles with good clearance could make it through, but a small car might have trouble.

When we returned later from Wakefield, the road was closed at the bridge in Masham, and vehicles were being detoured through Lac Des Loups.
