DOTD closes roads due to high water
Posted on 6/22/2017 12:14:00 PM.

State Transportation Secretary Shawn Wilson advises residents to take caution while driving today. He says 18 corridors across the southern half of the state have road closures on them because of high water. Wilson says drivers should never cross flooded roadways.

“Turn around, don’t drown because you’re always uncertain about how much water is on the road and what are the conditions under that water,” Wilson said.

Wilson encourages motorists to visit 511la.org for up to date travel information. He says over 37,000 people have visited the site in just 24 hours. He says this is the most central location for information on road closures.

“When you get to that site, you have the opportunity to choose different layers, to see any closure on the road, but more importantly where we have high water,” Wilson said.
