DENVER (KDVR) — If you are traveling in Denver and surrounding areas on Friday morning, your commute could be impacted by road closures.
The Aurora Police Department said the intersection of Alameda Avenue and Havana Street is flooded which has closed eastbound and westbound traffic. Southbound traffic is open and northbound is down to one lane.
Thornton road closures
The Thornton Police Department said multiple roads are closed due to flooding in the area.
TPD said the following roads were closed as of 4:30 a.m. Friday:
- East 144th Avenue is closed between Washington and York Street
- York Street is closed between E-470 and East 156th Avenue
- East 156th Avenue is closed between York Street and Colorado Boulevard
Other road closures
Police in Commerce City said flooding is also causing issues there. CCPD said East 96th Avenue is closed from Peoria Street to Potomac Street.
Wildlife Drive is also closed at Rocky Mountain Arsenal due to flooding.
Remember that if you come across a flooded roadway, “turn around, don`t drown.” It is never safe to cross a flooded road. Instead, it is always a better option to just turn around and take another route.
Adams County roads closed
The Adams County government tweeted a map of all the road closures as of 11:30 a.m. and photos of cars trying to drive through the flooded streets.
