Spring Flooding

Even if a road looks safe, it may not be!

Beaver County is experiencing some flooding and washouts on roads.  A list of roads currently reported as flooded or washed out is available by clicking here.

Please note:
This list is only accurate as of 11:30 am, March 29, 2019.  Roads are closed as necessary and opened as repairs are made.  Please watch for barriers, and do not drive on closed roads.  For your safety, drive with extreme caution.  Please slow down and take caution around any Public Works staff as they work.  Where hazardous areas are identified, please do not remove barricades.

Public Works crews will be working to confirm road status and monitor hazardous areas and water levels for changes.  If you observe hazardous road conditions (floods and/or washouts) that appear to be unmarked, please report it to 780-663-3730.  This phone number is in effect 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
