More Dawes County Roads Closed To Through Traffic By Flooding Or Washouts


      The list of Dawes County roads closed to through traffic because of flooding or washouts from recent rains continues to grow.

     County Highway Superintendent Wade Yada says inspections this morning by road crews led to the decision to close Deadman, Breakneck, and West Ash Creek Roads from Crown Butte to Table Road.

     On Friday, Mansfield Road from Old Hwy 20 to Raben Road and Lawrence Lake Road from Whitney Lake Road to Hwy 71 were closed to through traffic.

      Yada continues to urge the public to use caution when traveling county roads that are open because flooded areas and washouts may have occurred since they were inspected and might not be visible until just before a driver reaches them.
