    More than a dozen roads are closed Tuesday in Denton County due to high water in the area, officials say.

    The closures, listed below, are expected to remain in place for several hours -- an exact timetable has not been determined.

    • Milam Road
    • Rector Road West at Low Water Crossing
    • Old Alton
    • Tim Donald between Strader and Farm-to-Market Road 1384
    • North County Line from Highway 380 to Old Stoney
    • Eakin Cemetery East Low-Water Crossing
    • Swafford Low-Water Crossing
    • West County Line
    • Jim Crystal (Mouse Hole) 156 to Nail
    • Jackson West Low-Water Crossing
    • Jackson East-Low Water Crossing
    • C. Wolfe Low-Water Crossing
    • Oliver Creek at Bridge

    The 35 Express project has also announced the following roads are closed due to high water.

    • The northbound I-35E frontage road between McCormick and Underwood Streets. Motorists should use the exit ramp to Fort Worth Drive or North Texas Boulevard.
    • Underwood Street approaching the northbound I-35E frontage road.

    The southbound I-35E frontage road between Bonnie Brae Street and North Texas Boulevard has been reopened.

    Drivers are always encouraged to follow safety tips when driving on wet roads -- including avoiding crossing water that covers a roadway. As little as six inches of water can float a vehicle.

    Should you stall your vehicle in deep water, leave it and move to higher ground if you can do so safely.
