• FLOODING: Highway Closures Alert 5-19-17

    By: Melodie Pennington

    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.
