A section of highway northeast of Candle Lake is closed due to flooding.

Highway 120 is closed from Junction 913 to 106.
Doug Wakabayashi with the ministry of highways and infrastructure said he's not certain what exact area of the highway is washed out, but they close junctions so traffic can detour around.

He said they'll have to wait until the water goes down before that stretch of highway can be reopened.
