Kearney County was spared from the worst of the flooding that affected most of the state, but there are still significant damages to County roads. Highway Superintendent Randy Smith gave the Kearney County Board of Supervisors an update on the damages during the March 19 regular meeting.
Many roads are still closed throughout the county and getting them reopened will take some effort according to Smith. Finding dry material to fix the roads is difficult right now and multiple culverts have been washed out.
More roads are closed than the County has barricades for even after borrowing from the City of Minden. Some closed roads are marked with cones and flags. Drivers are encouraged to pay attention and heed warnings about road closures.
