Many roads are still closed due to flooding, meaning more detours and delays for drivers trying to get around the province.

A section of the Trans-Canada Highway between Oromocto and River Glade is still closed to through traffic Tuesday, according to the company that manages the stretch of highway. But access has been open to residents from both directions up to Jemseg.

A nine-kilometre stretch of highway at Jemseg remains closed to all traffic.

Al Giberson, the general manager for MRDC, said crews are monitoring the stretch of road but wouldn't say when it will re-open.
