Flooding Prompting Road Closures

Steady rainfall leading to flooding is causing the closures of many roads within and adjacent to the City of Santa Maria. Drainage systems are filling or full, and the Santa Maria River is flowing.
Drivers are urged to stay off the City streets if possible. Manhole covers have popped off on Daniel between Miller and McClelland Street because the drainage system became pressurized with runoff. The City has posted online this map of areas historically subject to flooding. Avoid these roads, which are closed:
  • Along the City’s west side, Blosser Road is closed from Rancho Verde to Hidden Pines, and Canal Street is closed north of the Blosser Basin from Riverton to Blosser Road,
  • Sonya Lane between Thornburg Street and Depot Street (see photo near Cherrywood Estates)
  • Dejoy Street is closed from Jewel to Kensington,
  • Williams Street is closed from Russell Avenue to Dejoy Street,
  • Black Road from Betteravia Road to Main Street (Highway 166).
  • Jones from Bradley Road to Suey Road,
  • Suey Road from Main Street to Jones,
  • Westbound Main Street (Highway 166) from College to Miller,
  • To protect the Hancock Park neighborhood near Marian Medical Center from street flooding, the Department of Public Works placed two temporary dams called a “muscle wall” on East Jones Street and Farrell Drive and Marian Drive, and at Marian and Jones. Muscle wall is a tough plastic barrier filled with water and connected by sections to form a temporary dam.

Inundaciones Provocan Cierres de Carreteras
 
Las lluvias constantes están provocando el cierre de muchas carreteras dentro y adyacentes a la Ciudad de Santa María. Los sistemas de drenaje se están llenando o están llenos, y el río de Santa María fluye.
 
Se les pide a los conductores mantenerse alejados de las calles de la ciudad si es posible. Las tapas de las alcantarillas se han desprendido en Daniel entre Miller y McClelland Street porque el sistema de drenaje se presurizó con la escorrentía. La Ciudad ha publicado en línea este mapa de áreas históricamente sujetas a inundaciones. Las siguientes carreteras de la ciudad están cerradas: 
 
  • A lo largo del lado oeste de la ciudad, Blosser Road está cerrada desde Rancho Verde hasta Eagleton, y Canal Street está cerrada al norte de Blosser Basion desde Riverton hasta Blosser Road.
  • Sonya Lane entre Thornburg Street y Depot Street, (ver foto cerca de Cherrywood Estates)
  • Dejoy Street está cerrada desde Jewel hasta Kensington,
  • Williams Street está cerrada desde Russell Avenue hasta Dejoy Street,
  • Black Road desde Betteravia Road hasta Main Street (Autopista 166).
  • Jones de Bradley Road a Suey Road,
  • Suey Road desde Main Street hasta Jones.
  • Westbound Main Street (Highway 166) desde College a Miller. 
  • Para proteger el vecindario de Hancock Park, cerca del Marian Medical Center, de las inundaciones en las calles, el Departamento de Obras Públicas colocó una represa temporal llamada "muro muscular" en East Jones Street y Farrell Drive y Marian Drive y Marian Drive y Jones. La pared muscular es una barrera de plástico resistente llena de agua y conectada por secciones para formar una presa temporal.
