County Commissioner Pct. 4 Tom Bellmyer has advised that County Road 4760, which extends off of FM 1970 South thru the Attoyac River bottom, has been closed indefinitely to thru traffic.
Bellmyer says due to rain throughout the Winter, the flooded Attoyac River has cut a new channel down the middle of the roadway, therefore it's a hazard to automobile traffic.
Bellmyer adds residents on either side of the river in Shelby and Rusk counties can still access their homes.
Again, CR 4760 in northwest Shelby County, which extends off FM 1970 South, is closed until further notice.
