The Indiana Department of Transportation has closed State Road 256 between Interstate 65 and S.R. 39 west of Austin due to high water.
Remnants of Tropical Storm Bill continue to cause flooding in the area.
INDOT officials remind motorists that most flooding deaths occur in automobiles. Six inches of standing water is enough to stall passenger cars. A foot of water can cause a vehicle to float away.
If you encounter a roadbed overtaken by flooding waters, “turn around, don’t drown.”
