Delaware County Roads Repaired after Weekend Flooding

Most of the roads that flooded in Delaware County over the weekend have been repaired.

The heavy rains washed out a number of roads in the northwestern portion of the county after three to six inches of rain fell during the severe storms on Saturday night. Early Sunday morning, the County’s Secondary Roads Department warned the public to stay away from the area west of Rocky Ridge Road and north of Old Highway 20.

But Delaware County Engineer Anthony Bardgett tells KMCH that crews have been out making repairs since then and most everything is back to normal now. Only two roads still remain closed – 200th Street between 110th Avenue and 120th Avenue near Masonville, and 150th Avenue between 120th Street and 130th Street near Dundee.

Bardgett says some of the worst damage included a washed out culvert on 120th Avenue, which is now repaired. You can find a photo of the damage above.
