Benton County Dealing with Flooded, Washed Out Roads
FOLEY -- If you're driving in Benton County over the next few days be prepared for some washouts and flooded roadways.
Heavy rain over the weekend has caused several gravel roads, driveways and county roads impassable.
Benton County Public Works Director Chris Byrd says they have crews out repairing the roads when possible, but are also marking danger areas. Byrd says they believe they have a good idea of where the problem areas are, but he says if you know of a flooded road or washed out road, you can call the public works department at 968-5051.
Byrd says the washouts and flooded roads are in all corners of the county. He says if you encounter standing water or washed out roads, you should find an alternate route as a precaution.
