by: Melodie Lettkeman Updated:

The following highways are impacted by high water or flooding:

 

CHEROKEE COUNTY

SH-80 is closed five miles south of SH-51 between Hulbert and Fort Gibson.

MCINTOSH COUNTY

SH-9 is closed between the Indian Nations Turnpike and SH-52.

REMEMBER:

  • Use caution in work zones as lanes already may be narrowed with little room to correct errors;
  • Use caution if you see pooled water as other drivers may cause sprays when hitting these areas;
  • Don't drive around barricades if roadway is closed; and
  • If you see high water, do not enter and turn around.

NOTE: Updates will be sent when conditions change.
