While the rain has lightened up this week in Livermore and neighboring communities, residents and city officials are still dealing with the aftermath of the recent storms, including areas that remain heavily flooded.
Residents of the Springtown neighborhood are still enduring significant flooding in the areas near Springtown Boulevard and Galloway Street and around Marlin Pound Park.
In a Facebook post Monday morning, the Livermore Police Department advised residents to heed caution and avoid driving through standing water as it could be deeper than what meets the eye,
"The flooding will recede as capacity in the creeks is freed up," the department said in the post.
LPD also notified drivers in the same post that Airway Boulevard between Kittyhawk Road to Terminal Circle had been temporarily closed due to flooding along with an eastbound lane of Las Positas Road near Las Colinas Road. Both roadways were reopened by Monday afternoon.
The city and LPD have been regularly sharing updates on social media regarding storm impacts and expected weather.
In the latest post Tuesday, officials said that the California Department of Water Resources will continue flood releases at Lake Del Valle until Sunday (Jan. 22). People are advised to keep away from the arroyos and adjacent trails.
Del Valle Regional Park also remains closed due to the ongoing water releases and the reopening of Sycamore Grove Park – which was initially set to reopen last week – is delayed.
The Arroyo Mocho trail from Robertson Park to Stanley Boulevard is also closed as well as several county roads leading in an out of Livermore, including:
* Marina Avenue from Wente Street to Arroyo Road
* Patterson Pass Road from Greenville Road to I-580
* Corral Hollow from County Line to I-580
