Water floods several Kent streets

The heavy rain Monday has caused water over the roadway on several Kent streets.

City officials report the following streets with water over the roadway:

Kent Kangley Bridge at Lake Meridian, 64th between S 212th St and 228th Ave S, 76th between S 212th St and 228th Ave S, 72nd between S 212th St and 217th Ave S, George Street between 84th and State Ave.

Storm crews are doing their best to keep the roads clear but there are sure to be other areas where the water will win, according to city officials. Please be aware of workers in the right-of-way and drive carefully. Do not drive through standing water which can be very hazardous.

Rain is expected to continue heavy Monday night into Tuesday so the water will likely rise some more before falling off.
