The National Capital Commission is praying for drier weather ahead so they can inspect any damage to recently upgraded paths along the Ottawa River.
The commission has closed paths all along the river due to flooding. A kilometre-long section behind Parliament Hill and the Supreme Court were closed earlier in the week, with the water covering the paths entirely by Thursday.
Other paths between Richmond Road and Parkdale Avenue were also closed.http://www.metronews.ca/news/ottawa/2017/04/20/pathways-under-water-as-ottawa-river-rises-.html
