Town Of Bracebridge Issues Second Freshet Update Including Details On Road Conditions


  1. After residing here for the past 10 years, and a cottager for many more, it amazes me that the annual flooding problems persist year-to-year. I guess what I don’t understand is why the roads that are flooding every year not rehabilitated once the dry weather comes, and put a stop to the worry and inconvenience for tax-paying residents, that yet again, have to find another way to get to and from their homes during the spring thaw.
