Boulder County Transportation has closed some roads temporarily due to low level flooding. You can stay on top of those closures (and openings) at: http://maps.bouldercounty.org/roadclosures/. At this time, Transportation is closing a part of N. County Line Rd. due to the Little Thompson overtopping the low-water crossing. They are also monitoring N. 83rd St., and 95th St. between Lookout Rd. and Valmont Rd. as water is close to encroaching on the southbound lane. If you use any of these roads for your afternoon or evening commute, please consider using a different route to get around the closures.
The Boulder Office of Emergency Management is monitoring weather and storm conditions today. There is a flood advisory in effect for the rest of the afternoon for the foothills, canyons, and some low lying areas. While we don’t anticipate significant flooding or flash flooding within the boundaries of Boulder County, we are experiencing some “areal” flooding (water rising up from the saturated ground) and some overflow from creeks spilling onto county roads in low areas.
As with any uncertain weather patterns or conditions, members of the public are encouraged to check the Emergency Status page on the Boulder OEM website: http://www.boulderoem.com/emergency-status/ whenever severe weather or Flood Watch or Warnings are in effect. Check back often for any updates if you have concerns about the weather or emergency conditions.
You can also check @BoulderOEM on Twitter and www.facebook.com/BoulderOEM for updates. Be sure to “like” or “follow” Boulder OEM social media to stay informed.
Remember, be safe when traveling through low lying wet areas and don’t risk getting caught up in moving waters.
