The Indiana Department of Transportation says a stretch of State Road 145 from State Road 64 in Birdseye to Interstate 64 in Siberia is now open again. The road had previously been closed earlier this week due to high water caused by rains last weekend.
A stretch of State Road 450 between US 50 in Martin County at Shoals to State Road 37 in Bedford remains closed due to high water.
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.
