Road Closings in Elmore County
The following is the listing of current road closures for Elmore County:
Redland Road from Hidden Forest East to Ware Road
Rifle Range Road beginning at the west end of Mack Taylor to Alice Lane (Private Road)
Flat Rock Road from Ellis Lazenby Road to Burt Mill Road
Friendship Road from Redland Road to Cherokee Trail
Friendship Road from Indian Trail to Dark Corners
There may remain numerous locations where travel on roads and bridges may be slick due to lingering effects of the wintry precipitation, especially during the overnight hours where temperatures will fall back below freezing. During the overnight hours it is likely that water that has ponded on or is draining across roadways will freeze creating occasional icy patches. Please continue to use extreme caution while driving during this next 24 hours.
The Elmore County EMA will do its best to keep the public informed of any changes with regards to the closures. Citizens can check EMA’s website at www.elmorecoema.com for updates that will be posted to the website as they become available.
