city of henderson2017HENDERSON, Ky. (2/12/20) — The Ohio River is on the rise, thanks to an abundance of recent rainfall, prompting Henderson Public Works Department to close Wolf Hills Road sometime Friday, Henderson Spokeswoman Donna Stinnett reports.

Barrels will be in place to mark the closure on the route, which is a popular cut-through between Evansville and east U.S. 60.

Public safety officials remind the public to resist the temptation to bypass “high water” signage and drive through the water. Turn around; don’t drown.

The rising river also means that deer and other wildlife will be pushed out of the river bottoms and up onto U.S. 41-N near Audubon State Park as they seek higher ground. Officials say drivers should use caution in that area.
