Black River Falls, WI (WXOW) - -

More than a dozen roads in Jackson County are still closed after rains and floodwaters damaged them.

A list of the closures, seen below, provided by Jackson County Emergency Management Coordinator Kristina Page show that most of the affected roads were washed out. In two cases, trees down on the road was listed, while a mudslide forced the closure of Lien Road in the Town of Franklin. 

Eleven of the roads closed are in the Town of Garden Valley northeast of Black River Falls and just north of Hixton. In all but one case, all the roads were washed out from the heavy rains on Tuesday. 

Initial cost estimates provided by Wisconsin Emergency Management were $50,000, but may increase as floodwaters recede and the roads better surveyed.
