Old Alton Road closed due to flooding

UPDATE (Monday 6:45 a.m.):  Old Alton Road and Copper Canyon Road have been reopened between Hickory Hill and FM 2181. The traffic light at Old Alton and FM 2181 was flashing red in all directions, so expect delays in the area.


Old Alton Road and Copper Canyon Road are closed between Hickory Hill and FM 2181 due to flood water from Lake Lewisville.

So far this May, the area has received over 7 inches of rain, which is over 4 inches above normal. More rain is in the forecast for Monday night and Tuesday.

Denton County officials are hoping to have the road reopened in time for school on Monday.

Old Alton sits in the floodplain of Lake Lewisville and serves as a vital link between the Lantana/Copper Canyon and Corinth/Denton areas. Hundreds of students and parents use the road daily to commute to Guyer High School on FM 2181.

Motorists should use FM 2499 or FM 1830 as alternate routes.
