As a safety precaution for the residents and visitors to the City of Cayce, city officials are closing the Cayce Riverwalk and pulling all emergency call boxes from along the Riverwalk.

The City of Cayce closed the Riverwalk on December 26th due to flooding. Two of the Riverwalk phases were reopened for a few hours Monday, but are closed again because the river is now expected to crest in the coming days.

"We know that the Riverwalk is a place where people in the Midlands like to go for exercise and recreation; however water levels continue to rise," said Cayce Spokesperson, Ashley Hunter. "The City will work to reopen the Riverwalk as soon as possible but for now citizen safety is our top priority."
