Something tells me that the civil engineers that designed the new six lane highway didn't take into consideration how fast and furious rain can fall in Central TX. We never had that problem back in 2007 before the road construction was complete and we had multiple floods in a two month time frame.
Oh gosh! I saw on the news this morning that you and TX had 5+" of rain already in less than 24 hours w/ another 5 more predicted for many areas!
When it comes all at once that fast the creeks & roads can't keep up.
Like us in March.
I hope Ed stays safe while driving!
