High water closes roads in McMinn and Meigs counties

Officials in McMinn and Meigs counties say high water has closed several roads, mostly the ones people expect to see flooded during heavy rains.

In McMinn, a dispatcher said the only road closed at 11 a.m. is Mayfield Lane in Athens near the milk plant.

Water is reported on County Road 87, County Road 713 and County Road 370, the McMinn dispatcher said.

State Department of Transportation officials visited state Highway 305 but found that high water there had receded, the dispatcher said.

But high water has closed four roads in Meigs, officials said.

Closures at 11 a.m. include Ten Mile Road, Mitchell Road, Womac Hollow Road and Big Sewee Road, the dispatcher said.

Meanwhile, heavy rains have had no impact on school schedules, officials said.
