2222 at Lakewood Drive

April 6, 2011

East of the intersection with 360, 2222 dips down very low over this creek next to Lakewood Drive. My parents live near this intersection, and I have driven over this strech of highway many times. I have never seen the road flood here, but it seems like it could be a potentially danergous spot. Currently there is major construction in the area to put in an overpass, but a secondary reason might be to raise the level of 2222/Lakewood to reduce the danger of flash flooding in the area.

2222 near Bull Creek

April 5, 2011

Not sure if this is a low water crossing, flash flood alley or both; but the terrain to the right of 2222, as it passes Bull Creek, slopes down towards the road and creek.  Sooo… in the case of a rain event and if the ground is already saturated, the nearby Bull Creek swells up and flows over the road; along with water flowing downhill into the road.  I almost got flooded away here once listening to a  Trail of the Dead albumn, ironic?,  … nowhere to go but forward and the valley filling up with water.  scary stuff.  I think they are working to elevate the road, but for now this place should be avoided come a rain down.

Country Road 174

This road crosses the Blanco.  One large storm and this road will be covered in water, very dangerous.

Hidden Valley Road crossing the Blanco

April 5, 2011

This road is just outside of Wimberley and, as you can see, crosses the Blanco River.  I would assume it has water crossing gates and is signed, but looks like a potential water highway with one good rainfall event.

River Road @ Country Road 1492

April 5, 2011

This intersection is in Wimberley where Country Road 1492 intersects River Road.  I’ve never been here, but I would image a decent sized rain event could cause the Blanco River to sweep over this road, creating an excellent example of a low river crossing.

Blanco River and Co Rd 161

April 5, 2011

This area seems like a to be a low crossing area.  Co Rd 161 seems too narrow to be over the river, and could be dangerous.

1975 aquarena springs drive and uhland

April 5, 2011

This is a low water crossing located behind the Zone apartment complex. There is a gate and a stop sign located just before the low water crossing. When heavy rain occurs, it is incredibly dangerous, and the gates may then be locked around the road.
