WATERLOO, Iowa (KCRG) - The flood gates on Fletcher Avenue in Waterloo will be closed until further notice, city officials announced today.

Rising water on Black Hawk Creek and the possibility of ice jams has made travel unsafe along the road.

The gates will reopen as soon as waters recede. Until such time, officials say drivers should find alternate routes.
