Despite Tuesday’s sunny weather, some areas of Monterey and Gratz were still experiencing the fallout from the wet weekend.
As the waters of the Kentucky River continued to rise above the 40-foot mark Tuesday morning, some Owen County roads were flooded.
Hwy. 355 between Monterey and Gratz and Gratz and Perry Park were blocked, along with Old Landing Road, Point of Rock Road and the lower end of Big Twin Creek Road.
Owen County Road Supervisor Greg Smoot said a temporary bypass had opened up Tuesday on Hwy. 22 above Gratz.
