A section of the remote Cash Canyon Road that goes from Lookout Valley along the Tennessee River toward the Tennessee River Gorge washed out during Saturday's downpours.
County Commissioner David Sharpe said County Public Works has a large excavator rented for Monday. He said, "They stated the time to repair would depend on if more damage is done tonight. If damage stays the same it could be a couple of days or less ,if it washes completely out, it would be a long repair. They have placed gravel today to try and stabilize it."
Commissioner Sharpe said 14 total residents had been contacted and they were "sheltering in place."
The winding road was already just wide enough for only one car in some sections.
Residents there long complained about its condition when it was a dirt road. It was paved in recent years.
Another trouble spot was at Lake Resort Drive, from the roundabout at Highway 153 to Lake Resort Terrace. City officials said it will be closed starting tonight (Saturday) until Sunday evening, while CDOT engineers inspect the roadway.
New road closures included the 5400 block of Hunter Road and the 7900 block of Harper Road.
There was flooding in the 7600 block of Middle Valley Road, the 2900 block of Igou Ferry Road, the 800 block of Boy Scout Road as well as the 300 block of Roberts Mill Road.
Road closures on Saturday morning included 2111 W. Shepherd Road, E. 32nd at Brannon Avenue, 323 Camp Jordan Parkway, Aster Avenue/Oak Street, 300 W. 16th St. and 7600 Davidson Road, 5609 Old Hunter Road, 10827 Lovell Road, 10400 Dolly Pond Road, Card Road at Lovelady Road, Daisy Dallas Road at Kingsbury Street, Winding Lane near Gadd Road, 13000 block of McGill Road and the 7800 block of Thomas Lane.

"Tennesseans should follow the instructions of emergency officials and stay on alert due to rising flood waters and the potential for more severe weather."
