Rising Waters Close State Roads in Seymour District

Motorists’ encouraged using caution around flooded roadways

SEYMOUR, Ind. -- The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announces rising waters have caused the closure of roads in the Seymour District.  The closures will remain in effect until waters recede.   The following sections of roadway have either been closed or INDOT is advising motorists to use caution around these areas of high water:

 

Bartholomew County 

**OPEN** S.R. 11 – between 400S. (Southern Crossing) and S.R. 46

Jackson County

S.R. 258 – between Vehslage Road (Seymour) and County Road 425 East (Cortland)

S.R. 235 - between Mill Street (Medora) and County Road 460 West 

 

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 news and information about INDOT, please visit www.in.gov/indot and www.trafficwise.in.gov .
