Several roads in Lincoln County will be affected by the snow melt and continued rain forecast for the area today (March 13) and tomorrow. DOT, County Highway, and Townships will try to mark closed roads. However, there may not be enough signs to mark every road that has water flowing over it. Highway Officials are asking everyone to avoid township roads whenever possible, and to be cautious driving on County and State roads during this “spring thaw/rain event.”
• City of TEA alert system stated: Due to the heavy rain, please remove all sump pump hoses from the sanitary sewer system ASAP to avoid sewer backups.
