Heavy flooding from the Ayalon River forced the closure of Highway 20, or the Ayalon Highway, in Tel Aviv on Tuesday morning, police stated.

The Highway's southbound lanes will be closed to traffic from the Glilot interchange just north of Tel Aviv to the central Tel Aviv Shalom interchange.

Police are instructing the public to take alternative routes, such as Route 4.

The closure of the Ayalon Highway is expected to cause heavy traffic throughout central Tel Aviv.
