NEAR CASCADE -- The recent rain is causing flooding in Valley County. Highway 55, south of Cascade, is down to one lane as Idaho Transportation Department crews work to clear water from the road.
Traffic is reduced to one lane as you come out of Smiths Ferry and enter Round Valley. ITD crews are controlling the traffic with stop signs to keep drivers from being forced to drive through the southbound lane on Highway 55, which is covered with water.
The flooding over the road began Thursday evening. Traffic control began at about 8 p.m., and continued throughout the day Friday.
The water is slowly receding, but when it began, crews say it was completely covering the road.
Snowplows were being used to displace water, forcing traffic to stop and wait. If heading either direction on Highway 55 Friday evening, expect delays.
Floodwater is also covering the Farm to Market Road in Roseberry. Photos sent to us by viewers via First Person show that the road is completely covered with water. The historic buildings in the area are also flooded.
