Flooding Closes Ballard Wildlife Management Area

Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources officials say flooding has temporarily closed the Ballard Wildlife Management Area.

Wildlife Regional Coordinator Tony Black says there are "safety concerns" about road travel due to recent rains. Black says staff began checking for visitors today and would close the entrance gates after the property has been vacated.

The more than 8,000-acre wildlife management area is located in western Kentucky's Ballard County along the Ohio River.
