A Section of Highway 70 Closed

According to the Texas Department of Transportation, a stretch of Highway 70 just south of Perryton will remain closed throughout the weekend.

The mile long piece of road was under 6 inches of water after heavy rains in Ochiltree County wednesday night.

Crews dug ditches to help drain the water, and are now waiting to see if there was any damage to the road, before opening it back up to traffic.
