Guardrails Installed to Keep Drivers Off of CR 100 W

HUNTINGBURG — Guardrails are now up on County Road 100 West to stop drivers from going on the closed road near the Conservation Club.

A portion of the roadway was damaged in the historic flooding earlier this year.

Highway crews feared for public safety after people began moving the temporary barricades and driving on the closed road.

That problem is now solved, but the Conservation Club is still trying to figure out a way to pay for repairs.

County Highway crews installed those new guardrails Tuesday.
