Flash Flooding Causes Closures in Jackson County

Strong storms and heavy rain Saturday night have forced the closure of roads and recreation areas in Jackson County. Residents are encouraged to avoid these areas for their safety.

All three major trails – Little Blue Trace, Longview and Lake Vista – are closed to the public. Crews are posting signs at all trailheads and access points to alert residents. Once the flood waters recede, crews will evaluate the damage and begin the necessary work for re-opening.

In addition, Longview Beach is closed today and activities at the 122nd and Blue River Soccer Complex have been cancelled. Leagues at the Frank White, Jr. Sports Complex will continue today as scheduled.

Drivers will also not have access to some roads in Jackson County due to high water. Road closed signs have been posted at the following locations:

Old Highway 40

Nebgen Road

Hardsaw Road

Gillespie Road

Old Pink Hill Road

Duncan/Howell Road

Seymour Road

 

Jackson County crews have worked efficiently and effectively over the past week conducting clean-up and repairs following storms and flooding on July 27. They will continue to closely monitor these locations and take the required action in an effort to make them safely accessible to the public.
