High Water Closes Roads In County

Barricades really were not necessary to keep motorists from driving through Cowskin Creek on Highway Y west of Ava last Saturday morning with this logjam blocking the road. The water had been much higher than it was when this picture was taken, and MoDOT warning signs let motorists know the route was not open. The road remains closed this week due to damage to the roadway, caused by the high water last weekend.
