SR 238 reopens after flooding shuts down Gila Bend, Maricopa

Damage from flooding temporarily closed a 20-mile stretch of roadway between Gila Bend and Maricopa, according to the Arizona Dept. of Transportation.

The road, which stretches between Gila Bend and State Route 347, reopened Thursday after being shut down for nearly a day.

SkyFOX video showed several inches of mud covering the roadway. Authorities did not say if the highway itself had been damaged.

Widespread rain on Wednesday caused flooding across the state, and much of northern Arizona still remains under a Flood Watch through Thursday.

More stormy weather is still possible across Arizona through Friday, but should calm down by the weekend.
