Highway 24 is now open in both directions between Colorado Springs and Woodland Park.
The highway was closed for over an hour when heavy rain in the burn area send water and mud on the roadway.
The flooding was minor, but the closure was a precaution to make sure motorists didn't get stuck in raging waters.
Fountain Creek is also starting to recede, easing flood concerns in the Manitou Springs area.
