Highways, arroyos, and flash floods

Jump to last reply

When I was a kid in southern New Mexico, many arroyos were not bridged, even on major highways. The highways dipped down into the arroyos and climbed up the other side.

It didn't rain much. But when it did, storms upstream sent brief flash floods down the arroyos, sometimes causing problems for drivers miles from the storm.

This was a long time ago. Is this a thing of the past like crossing the desert with canvas water bags hung on the sides of the car or is this something people still need to think about? I know the storms have not gone away!

Thanks, Pioneers!
