Steuben County roads reopened after historic flooding last week

All of the county roads that were closed in Steuben County last week due to historic flooding have been reopened, according to officials.

County Public Works Commissioner Vince Spagnoletti said County Routes 31 and 129, in Jasper and Woodhull respectively, are open.

Crews have been working on hauling debris out of those areas for the last several days. While the areas around the roadways are not completely cleaned up- the roads are safe to travel.

Officials did say that drivers are urged to continue using caution on area roadways. Any additional rainfall can prompt flooding around already-soaked areas.

Some detour signs exist still on local and state roads.
