Wapello County road closures

OTTUMWA — The most dramatic damage from the storms was on 90th Street, where flash flooding washed out a large section of the road.

The damage, photos of which quickly made the rounds online, means the road won't be open again anytime soon. County Engineer Brian Moore said the road will be closed for repairs "most of the summer."

Here's a listing of the roads closed right now. These roads are closed at this time and will remain closed until Monday, April 22nd. Of course 90th Street will remain closed indefinitely.
