Roads and routes affected by flooding
Due to heavy rainfall throughout this week, some roads and routes in York have been affected by localised flooding. River levels are expected to peak tonight (Friday) at 3.9M above summer levels, but may rise slightly over the weekend as more rain is expected across parts of North Yorkshire.
Please avoid travelling in or through flooded areas at all times, and take extra care if cycling or driving through heavy rain or standing water. All riverside paths and cycle routes are likely to be affected.
