Avoid Flooded Roads and Heed Roadway Warning Signs and Barrels.
 
 
Friday, September 30, 2016 - Prolonged periods of heavy rainfall have caused flooding on numerous county roads in Worcester, particularly those that cross the Pocomoke River.
Public Works crews are closing Sinepuxent Road due to a sinkhole between Mary Road and Lewis Road.
Those who do not have to go out today are urged to remain off the roads throughout the day. Those who must go out are urged to travel using the main highways and continue to be alert for signs of flooding.
 
When encountering flooded roadways do not attempt to drive through standing or moving water. Instead, turn around and take another route. Higher than average water levels are expected to continue along many roadways throughout the day today.
 
Worcester County Public Works and Emergency Services, in cooperation with the Sheriff's Office and other area law enforcement agencies are placing warning signs and barriers in locations where known flooding has occurred. Due to the number of flooded roads, limited resources are being taxed; therefore, some roadways that now have or may have standing water later today may not be posted, so continue to exercise caution.
