SEYMOUR, IN – The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) announces rising waters have caused the closure of roads in the Seymour District. The closure will remain in effect until waters recede.
The following section of roadway has been closed and INDOT is advising motorists to use caution around this area of high water:
Scott, Jackson, & Washington Counties
- S.R. 265 – between I-65 and S.R. 39
- S.R. 235 - between Mill Street (Medora) and County Road 460 West
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.
