Press Release 3-14-19
Marshall County Road Closures
Motorists are asked to use extreme caution on Marshall County roads.
Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall and rapid snow melt has caused many roadways in Marshall County to be impassable. Widespread locations have water over the road and washouts due to flash flooding and many roadways are impassable because of the frost thawing from the road.
The current road conditions are preventing rock hauling to these areas. Marshall County crews are working at full capacity to place warning signs and improve these conditions, although there are not enough signs for all road conditions, so motorists are asked to use caution. The conditions on the roads will most likely not improve until early next week, allowing road crews to work on unpaved areas.
Travel is not advised on unpaved roads in Marshall County.
