Rising Waters Close State Roads in Crawfordsville District

Drivers encouraged using caution around flooded roadways

 

CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind. – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announces rising waters have caused the closure of State Roads in the Crawfordsville District.  The closures will remain in effect until waters recede.  The following roadways have been closed:

 

Clay County

·        State Road 246, two miles east of the Eel River near Clay City

 

          Morgan County

·        State Road 42 between Eminence and Little Point

 

When encountering a flooded roadway, INDOT urges drivers to turn around and not drive through standing water.  According to the National Weather Service, most flooding deaths occur in automobiles. Six inches of standing water is enough to cause passenger cars to stall and a foot of water will float many vehicles.  For the latest road conditions, please visit www.trafficwise.in.gov.
