Mudslide Buries Jamestown's Main Street

No Homes Damaged In Overnight Flooding

Road crews were brought into clear Jamestown's Main Street following a mudslide in Boulder County overnight.

A resident called to report the flooding and slide around 11:24 p.m., Monday, near 150 Main Street.

Homes were threatened, but crews were able to mitigate the flooding, according to Boulder County Sheriff's commander Rick Brough.

Crews told Brough there had been problems with runoff in that area after a forest fire destroyed trees on the hillside.

Main Street was shut down until crews could clear out the mudslide which was about one-quarter mile long and up to a foot deep.

Jamestown is located in the foothills northwest of Boulder.
