[ARCHIVED] County re-opens Brandis Way

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — County Public Works Crews re-opened Brandis Way after a closure July
18. All County roads are open; however, motorists should use caution when traveling through
the area because debris and operating equipment may present hazards.

County Public Works crews closed Brandis Way due to an extraordinary event, with almost six
inches of rain in less than two hours, that caused debris flows and water over the roadway on
July 18. Debris obstructed one of the culverts, diverting water and debris onto the road and
rendering it impassable.

County crews will continue to work in the northern Schultz Flood area Thursday, July 19 to
clear roadways, remove debris from channels, clear driveways and assess infrastructure and
property damage. Further monsoon activity is expected today and people are encouraged to
follow the U.S. National Weather Service for alerts at and be aware of
flash flooding and avoid water flows in all areas.

Sandbags and fill are available at Tumbleweeds Store at 11985 East U.S. Highway 89 (across
from the confluence of Copeland Lane and Highway 89) to help protect property from flood

Affected residents are encouraged to call the County Call Center at 928.213.2990 to report any
property damage so officials can connect residents with resources for recovery.
