County road crews busy after downpours

Scotts Bluff County road crews have spent the day repairing gravel roads that were damaged by heavy rains in certain areas Sunday.

County Roads Director Bob Bennett says County Road 17 off of Highway 92 is passable now after being closed earlier in the day, and more work will be needed to bring it back to normal. The only actual road closure past today is County Road 13 between County Road H and J.

Bennett says crews were also working south of Gering on a couple of washouts and in the Haig area, where downpours caused issues.
