Substantial portions of the Manitoba highway system remain closed Monday morning, following a weekend's worth of rain that sent water levels rising.

In Brandon, the Trans-Canada Highway was closed overnight just east of First Street, until the Eastern Access Route, but re-opened just before 11 a.m. But the Eastern Access Route, Highway 110, remains closed, south from the Trans-Canada to nearly Richmond Avenue.

Water is deep on the Brandon Eastern Access Route, underneath the railway bridge.
