According to the Conway Police Department the following streets were blocked off as of 4 p.m. on Tuesday because of flooding:

  • Royal Drive and Columbia in Royal Oaks Subdivision
  • Sugar Creek Drive

Conway Public Information Officer LaTresha Woodruff said if the heavy rain continues, more roads could be closed. 

She said if you come on a road that is flooded to turn around and don’t drive on it.

“It only takes just a little bit of water to get swept away,” she said.

 Woodruff said to be careful even on the roads that aren’t flooded because they are still wet and slick.
