Monday Storm Pounds County Roads

Heavy rains and large hail poured across the foothills south of Canon City Monday afternoon. The rains caused heavy damage to Oak Creek Grade Road (CR 143) and on Evelyn Drive east of Dawson Ranch.

This photo was taken looking north on Oak Creek Grade where the pavement begins. The storm dumped tons of mud and debris on the county road. The flash flooding also left many private driveways and culverts damaged on Oak Creek Grade and Evelyn Drive. Fremont County Transportation Director Tony Adamic indicated it may take a week to make all the necessary repairs barring any more flooding.
