Officials with the Jasper Street Department say department crews have been working throughout the day to remove ice and debris from city streets that have been closed because of high waters that resulted from last weekend’s heavy rains.

The department says both West 2nd Street between Clay and US 231 and South Clay between West 2nd Street and Wernsing Road are now open.

Motorists are asked to use a bit of caution in these areas as the area has been treated with salt but remains slick in some spots as the salt need a little time to melt thru.

Additionally, the Indiana Department of Transportation says State Road 161 between State Road 66 and State Road 62 in Spencer County has now been reopened. Several roads in our area do remain closed due to flooding and these are:

Daviess/Knox County

SR 58, from SR 67 to SR 57
