Motorists Cautioned for Possible High Water on Rural Roads


High water on eastern Kentucky roadways is causing problems for motorists in the region, and that’s why the State Department of Highways is recommending they drive with extra caution, particularly in low-lying areas.

Allen Blair is a spokesman for District 9 and he says motorists need to be aware of possible high water conditions on the roadways.

“This week, what we’ve seen is some impacts due to the already saturated ground conditions and the excessive rain and the snow melt, so you know, quite a few factors came together this week to cause some high water conditions.”

Blair says there’ve been a number of trouble spots in Greenup County near Tygart’s and Lost Creeks. He says there’s also been high water on Dry Creek Road in Rowan County and on Kentucky 3303 at Plummers Landing in Fleming County.
