The Cottonwood Creek began over flowing on Tuesday afternoon just after 2 p.m.

Despite the construction of the $18M bridge and roadway, water spilled over 8th Street and up past 9th Street forcing the roadway to be closed for over 11 hours.

With flood stage set at 22 feet, the Cottonwood crested at 27.40 early Wednesday morning, according to the National Weather Service, ranking as the eighth highest flood for the area.

More rain is expected on Wednesday.
