Road Closures

Refuge Road Closures

Flint Hills NWR experienced flood conditions recently that have caused significant damage to roads. Until roads dry well enough to allow equipment operators to make repairs, roads will remain closed. Premature traffic on these roads causes further damage that is costly to repair.
