Entry Description

Rising Waters Close State Roads in Vincennes District

Drivers encouraged using caution around flooded roadways

VINCENNES, Ind. -- The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announces rising waters have caused the closure of roads in the Vincennes 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:

Daviess/Pike County

SR 257, from US 50 Washington to SR 356 Otwell

Martin & Lawrence County

NOW OPEN:  SR 450, from US 50 Shoals to SR 158 Bedford

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 call 1-800-261-7623 or visit www.trafficwise.in.gov .  You may also find road information on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/VincennesDistrict and Twitter account www.twitter.com/INDOTSouthwest .
