Road Closures

Filed in EM News Comments Off on Road Closures

Road closures on this site are primarily short-term due to issues such as flooding. Our goal is to have this as current as possible, but we can only use information that has been given to us so it is possible it not 100% accurate. This list is only meant to be a reference and does not replace the use of any common sense, barricades or unknown circumstances. In other words, if you experience water over a roadway or barricades (and that road is not on this list), please do not attempt to drive through the water or around the barricades. Instead, find an alternate route and report the road situation to our office at (620) 221-0470 or to the Emergency Communications Center at (620) 221-5447. 


Some closures may be long term and we will provide any additional information if we have it such as a potential date to be re-opened. 


The following roads are currently closed:

  • East Chestnut between US 77 and the bridge
