Some flooded roads will reopen soon

From local sources

The county’s list of high-water roads has shifted and is about to shrink. But has yet to do so.

Five road sections are currently blocked by high water ­— the same number as Thursday. But they are not all the same roads.

Those listed as impacted by backed-up runoff today are:

• County Road 800W north of County Road 300S.

• County Road 150S west of Old Huntingburg Road.

• Ell Creek Road north of County Road 400S.

• Old Huntingburg Road north of County Road 400S.

• County Road 400S east of U.S. 231.

One additional road that had been flooded — East First Street in Huntingburg west of County Road 75W — has water cleared off but it is still closed because of a bridge replacement, according to the Dubois County Highway Department.

Old Huntingburg Road is close to being reopened. The county said today it has water on only one traffic lane. In addition, according to the county highway department, a couple of additional roadway sections are also close to coming off the list.
