Lindley Roads

Reported by: Kayleigh Thomas

A state of emergency was set in place on September 22nd, 2018 because these past few weeks the roads in lindley have been really bad. There was a really bad flood and the roads got washed out. A flash flood watch was also set in place. This flash flood warning means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Water from the creeks rose so quickly that it left rocks, trees, and dirt covering the roads. All town roads were closed until being assessed or repaired. Some roads that were closed were Stowell road, Engle road, Watson creek, Morgan creek, and Griswold road. Since a number of the roads are closed it make it difficult and dangerous for people to travel. While the roads are closed many kids that lived there couldn’t go to school. The busses couldn’t go on the roads because they were very unsafe, many kids missed school. The roads are passable but with caution of the workers, that are working on the roads. As of October 1st, 2018 the roads are able to be driven on with busses, making kids that ride busses able to go to school. Malayna Buman, a student who lives in Lindley, explained how the road work is coming. “ As of right now some of the roads, depending on where you are, some of the roads began being worked on. Creeks have fallen in, and side of roads have been washed out so that has made workers come out and fix them.” The roads have been improving and they should be as good as new very soon.
