One Road Re-opens as Some Flood Waters Recede
Four roads remain closed due to water, mudslide

One Thurston County road near Rochester was re-opened today as heavy rains in the South Sound began to ease and water receded from the roadway. However, three other roads in south Thurston County remain closed due to water over the roadway, and Prather Road SW between Lundeen Road SW and Michigan Hill Road SW also remains closed as clean up from a mudslide in the area continues.

  • Independence Road SW between Marble Street SW and Michigan Hill Road SW

Continued Road Closures
  • Moon Road SW at 188th Avenue SW
  • Gravel portion of Anderson Road SW north of State Route 12
  • Tilley Road S at the "S curves" south of Wright Road SE
  • Prather Road SW between Lundeen Road SW and Michigan Hill Road SW
