Six Carroll County roads remain closed due to flooding

The Ohio River crested Saturday morning at 50.1 feet, below the projected level of 51.7 feet, according to Carroll County Flood Plain Manager Mitchell Perkins. As of this morning, the Kentucky River had fallen by 2 feet at Lockport, upstream from Carrollton.

The following roads  in Carroll County have been closed due to high water: Sheehan Road, Old Gilgal Road, Hampton Lane, Happy Hollow Road, Second Street (in Carrollton) and Notch Lick Road.

Carroll County Sheriff Jamie Kinman reminded people not to drive through standing water as they could put themselves in danger. “It is very important to remember that roads or bridges can be washed out beneath the standing water and nobody should risk crossing the water,” he said in a news release.

Perkins said he will continue to monitor the river levels and provide updates on any new road closures.
