Town of Shandaken officials tell us that Oliverea Road is closed above the intersection with Deer Lane. The Onteora School District announced this morning that they were unable to pick up students from over a dozen families affected by the road closing, and that it was unclear when the road would open again.

Oliverea Road is the only road still closed in Shandaken, officials say. On Tuesday night, several other roads in Phoenicia and Oliverea were closed due to flooding.

The town remains under a state of emergency until all roads can be assessed.
