Here Are All The Officially Closed Roads To Avoid This Weekend In Montreal

Montreal is currently experiencing some insane winter weather that has thrown the city into complete chaos. There are literally people having to climbs walls to avoid walking through deep puddles of water and piles of ice on the street.

If you thought the sidewalks were bad, you should see the roads. Semi-submerged cars and even buses are crawling through the rising water and treacherous sheets of ice around the city, and, as of noon yesterday, Montreal officials have shut down certain streets as safety precautions.
