GOLDEN, Colo. -- The Director of Public Works says it's something he has not seen in 25 years.

It's not the ice on top of Clear Creek.  It's how some water has made it out from under the frozen creek and into nearby parking lots and ball fields and then freezing outside of the creek's banks.

Nobody from a nearby RV park has had to be evacuated, but some residents have left just in case.

Signs reading:  "Trail Closed Ahead" can be found along nearby trails.

Plans are in place in case water levels get worse.
