Flooding forces road closures across county


Follow The Republic:


The following roads are closed because of high water due to heavy rainfall Saturday, according to the Bartholomew County Emergency Operations Center:

County Road 400S at County Road 750E.

County Road 400W at County Road 200S.

County Road 500S at South County Road 250E.

Stafford Road from County Road 900E to North County Road 1220E (County Line).

County Road 580W between Old Nashville Road and West County Road 50N.

Maj. Todd Noblitt, chief deputy of the Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department, said it is illegal for motorists to drive on roads that are marked closed because of high water. He also noted that only 6 inches of water is needed to sweep a car off a roadway, a concern when temperatures are colder and prolonged submersion in water could result in hypothermia.

State Road 9 east of County Road 500N
