NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - Several road closures still remain in effect in Nacogdoches County following last week's flash flooding on Thursday.

Parishioners heading to Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church from Highway 21 on County Road 353 had to re-route themselves.It was closed because just a mile north on the road due to a sunken culvert.

There's a gap of at least 20 feet to the north side of CR 353.

This is just one of many roads that the county road and bridges crew are facing.

Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office last update on Friday, showed up to 10 roads were either shutdown, closed or limited access.

"So we urge our people that drive along these county roads to be extra cautious. To leave earlier, don't be in a rush; and just please slow down," cautioned Sheriff Jason Bridges.

Drivers may definitely want to slow down on a very bumpy County Road 620 on the southwest side of the county.

About 7/10 of a mile south of Highway 7, there's an exposed culvert with a huge branch protruding at least 2 feet high.

The sheriff's department's website and Facebook page is being updated with the latest road closures.
