(UPDATED) Rising waters close state roads in Vincennes District

Sunday, January 13, 2013

(AS OF 3:53 P.M. MONDAY) NEW: State Road 157 from State Road 54 (Bloomfield) to State Road 67 (Worthington) is now closed according to INDOT.

VINCENNES -- 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:

Greene County

State Road 43 from State Road 54 (Cincinnati) to State Road 48 (Whitehall)IS NOW OPEN.

Knox and Daviess Counties

State Road 358 from State Road 67 (Edwardsport) to State Road 57 (Plainville)

Martin and Lawrence Counties

State Road 450 from U.S. Route 50 (Shoals) to State Road 37 (Bedford)

Orange and Washington Counties

State Road 337 from State Road 37 (Orleans) to State Road 56 (Livonia)

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 .
