PARKE COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Parke County emergency services want you to know they have a plan to help those who live south of the Lyford Y.

They say their response times will be affected for those who live south of the Lyford Y along U.S. 41. and it will affect getting patients transported to hospitals in Clinton and Terre Haute.

That's because of the closures of both U.S. 41 at the Lyford Y an U.S. 59 south of Mansfield.
