Portion of State Route 141 closed due to flooding

State Route 141 in Lawrence County is closed between State Route 775 and Township Road 204 (Arabia-Greasy Ridge Road) due to flooding.

The Ohio Department of Transportation District 9 also reported high water between the 16.0 and 16.2-mile marker on State Route 141, south of State Route 775 and the community of Wilgus. Although the route is passable at this location, closure may become necessary should water continue to rise.

The duration of closure is unknown and motorists will need to seek alternate routes. Motorists are reminded that crossing any closed route is strictly prohibited and they are also reminded to exercise additional caution when traveling over any route which remains open but where standing water may be present.
