A county road south of Rock Springs has been temporarily closed.
Sweetwater County Sheriff Mike Lowell and the County Department of Public Works / Road & Bridge said Friday that Thursday nightâ€™s heavy rains caused severe flooding along and across County Road 33, the Flaming Gorge Road (also called the Big Firehole Road). Debris deposited on the roadway, coupled with damage, have made it impassable.
Lowell recommended that in the aftermath of last night’s storm, caution be exercised on county roads everywhere.
County crews are at work to reopen the road, and an announcement will be made when it is reopened.
