Roads, Bridges and Flooding

Citizens of Logan County,

We all have been affected by the recent weather.  Our county roads and bridges have received tremendous damage.  Mesonet readings indicate over 18 inches of rain has fallen in Guthrie in the last 90 days.   This amount of rain causes damage that cannot quickly be repaired.

All roads are important. We must prioritize our efforts as we begin the recovery process.  School bus routes, mail routes, emergency services and areas with no access will be addressed first.  In some areas it may be necessary to detour traffic to routes that may not be the shortest or closest to your location.  We understand this may be inconvenient.

Our resources and funding are being stretched to the outer limits.  Suppliers statewide are running short of materials as so many areas in the state are in need. Our crews are diligently working to make as much progress as possible each day.

We ask for your patience and understanding as we make every effort to recover and move ahead.

With the possibility of additional severe weather over the next few days, we ask everyone to stay aware.  Do not go around barricades.  Do not drive into water.
