Road Conditions: Exercise Caution

Prior flooding in 2017.

“With the amounts of rain that we are getting and will be getting through Sunday there will possibly be some road closures,” William Wallis, Bourbon County Emergency Manager said.  “Most, of if not all, of the county roads that normally flood, have signs posted before the crossing that state, ‘impassable due to local flooding.’

Bourbon County Public Works Director Eric Bailey said he hadn’t received any calls on road closures as of 11:45 p.m. on March 12.

“Understanding your surroundings and be mindful of any creeks or river crossings in your area is very wise,” Wallis said.  “Never attempt to cross any water over the road, especially if it is flowing across the road.”

Call 911 if there is an emergency situation, he said.
