Thursday morning road closings in Bartholomew County

The Bartholomew County Emergency Operations Center reports that several area roads remain closed due to high water. That includes:

  • 800S between State Road 11 and South U.S. 31
  • 400N between U.S. 31 and River Rd, including Tinkey Bridge
  • Tellman Camp Road between Indianapolis Road and 200W
  • South Jonesville Road at East 550S
  • 900N at 300E

High water is running over Jonesville Road/State Road 11 near Jonathan Moore Pike but it is considered passable.

Dispatchers also say that there is high water at Second and Franklin streets.

Authorities warn that you should never drive onto flooded roadways. They say, Turn around and don’t drown.

A flash flood watch remains in effect in our area through tonight with the potential for heavy rain this morning, according to the National Weather Service. Another 1 to 2 inches of rain is possible in the area. That rain will be falling on already saturated ground, leading to the danger of flash flooding.

Rivers have returned to normal levels in Bartholomew County, but East Fork White River in Seymour is still running in the moderate flood stage.
