Information from the Indiana Dept. of Transportation says, "Motorists are advised to use caution when traveling and try not to drive through standing water on roadways. Do not assume that because there are no barricades that crossing a flooded street or intersection is safe. Current road conditions are serious threats to public safety and should be heeded. Roads will be reopened for travel after the water has receded."
