Only twenty minutes south of Indianapolis, Franklin is an exciting blend of tradition and innovation. Franklin has a rich history, dating back to its founding in 1823. Our downtown boasts traditional main street shops, coffeehouses and restaurants, and the outstanding academic institution of Franklin College. Victorian mansions line King and Jefferson streets, and our trails provide plenty of opportunities for a quiet walk or a scenic jog.

Franklin is also a city on the move. It is home to a state-of-the-art high school, a bustling night life, and nonprofit groups that work hard to advance our quality of life. Our pro-business attitude and strategic location have attracted companies globally, including seven Japanese corporations.

Multiple roads in Johnson County are closed due to high water. The Sheriff's Office and many other public agencies are out assisting motorists who have chosen to drive through high water.

One call occurred at 2744 South 225W, Franklin, where a driver chose to drive through extremely high water. Three people had to be rescued from the roof of the vehicle as water rushed into the vehicle.

The Johnson County Sheriff's Office Dive Team are on stand-by awaiting to assist. We are requesting that people do not drive through high water, you do not know how deep the flooded area is nor do you know how swift the water is moving.

Johnson County Highway is out placing barricades up closing multiple roads. We are asking people to obey the signage and not drive around the barricades. They are up for a reason and that is your safety and the safety of public safety officials who have to risk their lives due to someone being inpatient.
