River flooding continues

My obsession with our flooded river continues. These pictures were taken from downtown’s southernmost river crossing, the DART bridge. Actually, the Santa Fe Trail, which is right next to the DART bridge, is a few feet further south. That bridge is cut off from 8th and Corinth Station because the bike path connecting the station to the bridge is still under water.

Although there are signs of the river receding on the Oak Cliff side, the length of time the river bottoms are flooded adds to the ridiculousness of putting a highway here unless it’s going to be a five-mile-long bridge, which it’s not.

More flooding to come. Rain is predicted again and Lake Lewisville is still way above flood stage and water needs to be let over the dam.
