CHP responds to flooded roadway in rural Placer County

The California Highway Patrol on Saturday afternoon responded to reports of a flooded roadway in rural Placer County.

The flooding measured up to 5 inches deep in some areas of the roadway at South Brewer Road near Sunset Boulevard West, east of Pleasant Grove near the Sutter County line, according to the CHP.

The roadway is surrounded by plots of farmland and is experiencing flooding spanning a 70-yard stretch, according to Sgt. Dan Fugate, a spokesman for the CHP.

The road remains open and signage has been set up to warn drivers in the area of flooding, Fugate said.

“Traffic is still able to pass through,” he said.

Fugate said that officers were sent out to the location the night before after flooding was reported. He said the cause of the flooding is still unknown.
