Public Works will reopen the roads after the threat of rain or the storm systems have passed and debris and damage inspections of the roadways are completed.
Due to the forecasted storms, the Foothills Incident Unified Command is advising residents in at-risk burn areas to be alert, monitor the weather reports, and remove vehicles from the streets where possible.
