Roads to remain closed longer at Doug Travis WMA due to river flooding


Frankfort, Kentucky – Several gates and roads originally scheduled to open March 16 at the Doug Travis Wildlife Management Area in Carlisle County will remain closed due to Mississippi River flooding. These roads will remain closed to vehicular traffic until river levels drop significantly, and workers remove silt and drift debris to ensure safe public use of these roads.

Areas posted by signs “Closed November 1 – March 15” will open on March 16 to foot and boat traffic only. For more information about the status of access to this area, call (270) 488-3233.
