Waters Rise And So Do The Deer | Use Caution

Henderson, KY 1/4/21- The Ohio River is on the rise, due to extensive local rainfall over the weekend as well as upstream. As a result, the City of Henderson Public Works Department will be forced to close Wolf Hills Road sometime in early afternoon on Wednesday, Jan. 5.

It is estimated that the closure will remain in place until the first part of next week. The river is currently forecast to crest at 41.3 feet. Barrels will be in place to mark the closure on the route, which is a popular cut-through between Evansville and east U.S. 60.

Public safety officials remind the public to resist the temptation to bypass “high water” signage and drive through the water. Turn around; don’t drown.

The rising river also means that deer and other wildlife will be pushed out of the river bottoms and up onto U.S. 41-N near Audubon State Park as they seek higher ground away from the backwater. Motorists should use caution in that area.
