CASTLE ROCK, Colo. —Flooding throughout Castle Rock forced road closures as drivers tried to navigate high water on Monday.
Castlegate Drive at New Abbey Lane was shut down after a large wall, built into a hillside, partially gave way. Water spilled off the wall, creating some scary moments for drivers. Video from viewer Crystal Graves showed the intensity of the flooding.
Police sent out a warning ahead of the afternoon rush hour telling Twitter followers of street flooding throughout the town.
Castle Rock officials used a drone to inspect the wall. The wall has been an issue with rain water in the past — leading to safety concerns.
Castle Rock police said the town determined the wall was structurally safe Monday evening.
