State Road 145 Close Because Of Flood Water

Last updated on Thursday, December 22, 2011

(BIRDSEYE) - The Indiana Department of Transportation announces rising waters have caused the closure of State Road 145 from State Road 64 (Birdseye) to Interstate 64.
The closure will remain in effect until waters recede.

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.
