Sheriff Craig Webre advises all residents that the situation involving Highway One and also Highway 308 in the area near the Bellevue Bridge is critical as power poles and lines are completely blocking the roadways.
Deputies have established checkpoints at the Valentine Bride, on both the Highway One and Highway 308 sides to ensure that these roadways remain untraveled. Along Highway 308, power poles and lines directly impede traffic just south of Bollingers to a mile north of the KLRZ Radio station. Highway One has numerous power poles down just south of the Valentine Bridge. Additionally this roadway is extremely hazardous for travel as the shoulder of the roadway is in danger of caving.
Deputies are also stationed at the T-Bois Bridge to ensure that the mandatory curfew is maintained.
Sheriff Webre ensures all residents that as soon as these roadways are cleared and safe for travel the checkpoints will be lifted.
